Kineton Quarry

Powering a quarry

Novus Solar has developed and funded the installation of a 250 kW solar array in a working quarry in the Cotswolds, the first of a number of such projects planned for quarry sites across the UK.

The array, sited in an acre of remediated quarry land, is phase 1 in a development that could increase in size to 1.5 MW to meet the peak time power demand of the quarry and significantly offset its dependence on oil fuel generation, providing the quarry with financial savings and energy security.
