As we move confidently toward 100% reliable renewable energy supply, another major step on the way has been announced by Scottish Water Horizons. They’ve just completed a £1.2 million, 5 000 panel solar farm at Badentinan near Lhanbryde. The electricity will be used to power two borehole water wells nearby. That means pumping water from the ground to a nearby water treatment works.

Even bigger are the planned 80 000-panel farm by Elgin Energy and the 200 000-panel farm on the abandoned Milltown airfield.

You’ll remember from previous reports here that Moray’s long summer days are a big attraction. Fuller explanation is here:
