Sustainable Hayfield Awarded Government Grant for a Renewable Energy Generation Feasibility Study

Sustainable Hayfield has been awarded grant funding by the Rural Communities Energy Fund (via its regional arm - the Midlands Energy Hub) to undertake a feasibility study into the scope for renewable energy generation in Hayfield parish.

The money will be used to pay for consultants to see if there is potential for generating renewable energy, particularly a local solar farm, in Hayfield. They will consider factors such as local planning regulations, landscape, climate, and visual impact. This study is expected to take approximately 12 weeks to complete and consultants have started work already.

The group is encouraged that the government is supporting projects like this, boosting efforts to enhance community control over electricity generation and move towards net zero carbon emissions.
