Wessex Solar Energy invites residents on the Hoo Peninsula to have their say on Lower Stoke solar farm plans
Employment in the next-largest renewables sector, wind power, is estimated to run to some 834,000 jobs. Uncertainty about the future direction of policies in several countries weakened job creation in this field in 2013, leading to a sharp drop in new installations in the United States and to weak markets in large parts of Europe and in India. In contrast, developments in China and Canada were more positive. Countries that are home to half of the world’s population-China, members of the European Union, Brazil, the United States, and India-account for the bulk of renewable energy employment: 5.8 million direct and indirect (supply chain) jobs out of 6.5 million worldwide. Better information is necessary for a range of countries to generate a more complete and accurate renewable energy employment picture.

Wessex Solar Energy (WSE) hopes to install a solar park on 26 hectares of land at Malmaynes Farm, about 800m west of Lower Stoke. The company says it is keen to get feedback at Lower Stoke Village Hall on the Monday, July 7, but is already promoting the benefits of the park, which at 12MW in capacity would be large enough to supply about 2500 houses with renewable energy. Library picture A statement said livestock would be able to graze between 3m high panels during the parks 25 year operational life, and electricity would be exported from the site via existing transmission lines. If given planning permission, the project would take three to four months to construct and become operational. Richard Wearmouth, a director of WSE said: We have our thoughts on what a scheme might look like on this site but we want to make sure that the public has the opportunity to raise any thoughts or ideas on how we could improve our designs prior to any application. There is a long and proud tradition of generating energy on the Hoo Peninsular and rightly so.
