Pencoose Solar farm

With a distinct vote of Cornwall Council's Planning Committee of 15 to zero in favor of the planned 8MW solar park this region emphasised once more its consequent attitude towards the active growth of renewables in the United Kingdom. The concerted collaboration of landowner, parish council respresentatives, project development partner and ENERGISTO has been decisive for this fulminant voting result. After the successful project sale to an international investor construction phase of the solar park has started in the end of January 2015. The team of ENERGISTO supports the project until the operation of the park has commenced.
