Southill Solar site open day

Southill Community Energy directors Tim Crisp, Als Parker and Chris Barras are delighted to invite SCE members to join them on the Parish Boundary Walk to the Southill Solar site.

Showing off Southill Solar

This will be an exciting opportunity to visit the solar farm and learn more about recent developments and the workings of the solar site. You will:

  • hear about the the biodiversity and landscape management plans for the site and see the young apple orchard trees recently planted
  • view the UK's first Thermosolar hive, helping eradicate the Varroa mite, currently being installed
  • learn about the performance of the solar panel arrays so far and see how renewable energy generation works in action...

Mind where you put your feet!

The site is being established as a conservation area for ground nesting birds such as skylarks so we will need to take care not to disturb habitats.

Timings, where to meet us and what the walk's like

The Parish Boundary walk is on Sunday 21st May. Come along and meet us on Cornbury Bridge at 10 am. You are welcome to bring a picnic and stay on site until 2.00pm.

The walk from Cornbury Bridge to the site takes approximately an hour.

The Parish Boundary Walk is not an established footpath and unfortunately not suitable for buggies. Please wear sturdy footwear!

The Southill Solar team looks forward to welcoming you on the walk and then on site.
