Lightsource Renewable Energy is working towards installing a solar farm at Middle Balbeggie near Thornton in Fife. Lightsource is a British company who already owns and operates a variety of solar farms and rooftop installations across the UK, working with local communities, businesses and landowners to generate green energy locally and sustainably.
The proposed field has been chosen for the project because it is well-screened by surrounding hedgerows and trees, so there are very few views from the surrounding area. The wide field margins and boundary hedgerows will be managed to create and enhance habitats for local birds and wildlife.
Generating energy locally means the UK can reduce its reliance on foreign fossil fuel supplies, but it also opens opportunities for championing the local businesses and skills around each site.
