    Horam Solar farm

    The solar energy boom of recent years may seem ironic for a place infamous for its rain, but photovoltaic power is essential for meeting the UK’s renewables targets. Even so, after an area of land has been used for solar farming, it is imperative to return the area to a landscaped environment. RSK ended 2015 on a high note with the ecological reinstatement of Horam solar farm, a 26-acre site in East Sussex built by Vogt Solar. The site combines ecological enhancements and attractive green space.

    RSK planted about 7500 mixed native-hedgerow plants to provide a natural screen and two native copse areas that will blend in seamlessly with the Sussex countryside and create an excellent source of shelter and food for local birds and wildlife. We also created a pushchair-friendly path and equine bridleway for visitors on foot, on wheels or on horseback around the site, offering extensive views over the South Downs.

    Our ecologists installed bat boxes, hedgehog homes, bird nesting planks and hibernaculum to increase the site’s biodiversity and enable it to become a small nature reserve. Wildflower meadows will further enhance the nature of the site by providing nectar-rich flora for insects, as well as being beautiful to look at. All of this work proves that you can produce clean, green energy while supporting the natural environment and providing an attractive green space enhancing the health and wellbeing for everyone.
