The Solar Power Station is bigger than Faversham. The panels will be 3.9m/12.5 feet high: the height of a double-decker bus.
Just the electrical compound – the electrical substation and the batteries behind the bund will extend over 10ha – 20% bigger than the Faversham Recreation Ground which is a mere 8.1ha.

The Cleve Hill Solar power station will be built over land that has been part of the Faversham floodplain for hundreds of years
