From what may have been the greenest solar farm ever to Ecotricity’s efforts topromote bee-friendly solar installations, UK solar developers have already been making great strides to ensure that large-scale solar doesn’t come at the expense of natural wildlife habitat.
Now a partnership between the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and solar developer Anesco is aiming to contribute to this trend, using the land in and around solar farms to promote biodiversity and protect threatened species. Initially, the partnership will involve RSPB experts visiting a number of Anesco’s solar farm sites to make recommendations on how they can be further enhanced to the benefit those wildlife groups deemed to be under the most serious threat. Anesco will then take these recommendations into account to develop biodiversity management plans for all new solar farm sites that it builds.
