'Sun park' approved for Conisholme field

A so-called "sun park" of solar panels connected to the national grid is to be built in Lincolnshire.

East Lindsey District Council has given permission for the installation near a windfarm in Conisholme.

The panels, which could power about 250 homes, are expected to be fully operational by March.

Dale Vince, of Ecotricity, the firm behind the plans, said the five acre installation would produce about one megawatt of electricity each year.
