WATERSWALLOWS FLOATING SOLAR ARRAY
A COMMUNITY RENEWABLE ENERGY PROJECT
It’s early days, but when we spotted an article about a floating solar array at Godley Reservoir near Hyde, we wondered if that might work round here. We soon realised that we had a pretty good lake near Buxton – the old quarry pit at Waterswallows. A brownfield site, designated for industrial use, not overlooked by or used by anyone, and it’s very big. Even better it’s very near to the main substation that feeds Buxton and to large power users such as Tunstead Quarry.
