Agreed - the Planners need independent expert advice because the the figures can be 'manipulated' or interpreted in so many ways.  For example, just based on personal experience ..... 1. our peak output is 4kw.  Pro-rataed over 71 acres that would equate to about 37Mw, not the 7.5 quoted, (assuming 50% spare space needed on the site).  That would imply about 1600+ homes (i.e. 324x37/7.5) 2.  ...

One hopes that Teignbridge Planners are well informed by independant consultants. As Planning Applicants and their agents often try to pull the wool over their eyes, and in turn the eyes of third parties.  Often 'pure fiction' is by deliberate omission. But does this figure have to be accurate?  I would have thought so, from what I understand the solar power industry is subsidized by the tax ...

The more homes the site is capable of supporting, the smoother the planning request will be, even if it's pure fiction. Does the planning dept have a chart/body who verifies these claims?  Governments have been doing stat's manipulation for decades to their advantage.

As Neilh rightly states they do not generate at night, which is when the majority of electricity is used. In addition during dull or rainy days the power generated is considerable less so to me the only place solar should be installed is on the roof of a building. Not on a green field site.

2100 homes sounds closer conservative estimate.  Calculation depends on so many things - direction the panels are facing, angle at which they are pitched, weather, type of panel, transmission efficiency etc.  We have solar PV which is a major saving but doesn't provide all our electricity - don't forget you can't generate at night.  I estimate that our panels occupy about 180 sq ft and over the ...

According to my research, a home requires a solar panel measuring 285 square feet. There are 43560 square feet per acre. So 43,560 divided by 285 equals 152 homes that can be powered by an acre. Multiply that by 71 acres equals 10,851 homes.  Obviously that's straight mathematics that doesn't allow for space between the panels, however there you go. I might change my name to Carol ...

An objecter ( A smart grid consultant) to the Ashcombe Solar Farm has calculated that the 71 acre array will only generate power for 324 homes.   The applicant 'Solstice'  has stated it will power 2,100 homes.  It is a big difference.  Are there any power experts out there who can do the Maths if so, how many homes do you make it? ...

Yes, awful awful news. Thought it was something serious though as I know someone who travelled that way about 3.30pm yesterday who told me the road was sealed off the Topsham side of Countess Wear and then someone else I know who travelled that way about 8.15pm last evening also said the road was still sealed off. Sadly a road being sealed off that length of time usually means a very serious or ...
