The wind farm will power 6335 homes saving c2800 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year* –  helping to tackle climate change by making an important contribution to local and national carbon reduction targets.

 

We are passionate about protecting and enhancing wildlife at all of our solar farms, at Sawmills this includes:

 

• Retaining and enhancing valuable ecological features including trees,     hedgerows, and field margins.
• Sowing grassland seed mixtures, including fine grasses and wild flowers,   beneath the solar panels.
• Sowing a “pollinator” seed mix to provide a source of pollen and nectar for   declining species of butterflies and bees.
•Installing bird boxes for barn owls and kestrels.
