Business Energy supplier given planning permission for Sun Park

Business Energy user could soon be recieving their business electricity through Sun Parks.  Ecotricity has just one planning permission for its first site.

The business energy suplier can now move forward with their plans to built the 1MW worth of photovoltaic panels.  The site is opposite Ecotricity's fen way park wind farm.

Ecotricity founder Dave Vince said "This is a really exciting new initiative for us and for the UK. It's not just a new green power source we can harness on a large scale through our Sun Parks - but also the chance to combine that with wind energy."

Wind and solar energy are seen as being complemtary power sources. Over the winter when there is less sun, there is typically more wind, and vice versa in the summer months.
