Solar power company EOS Energy is putting the finishing touches to a £3M array of photovoltaic (PV) cells in Newquay, Cornwall.
The Warwickshire-based company has been busy installing over 5,000 units spread over 4ha of land in recent weeks.
At 1.15MW, this will be the largest array of solar panels installed under the Feed In Tariff (FiT) system.
The operation has been accelerated using the company’s BritSol mounting system. EOS Energy managing director Gary Summers said: “The speed of installation has been phenomenal. At peak our engineers have been installing an incredible 1,000 solar panels per day.”
The array is being built at Hendra holiday park, which is aiming to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels by 50%.
The holiday park also plans to provide electrical vehicle charging points for free on site use by the public.
