The Island of Wight is well known as a place to go on Holidays or even to their famous festival but… did you know they’re carrying out some really green and interesting projects?

The solar projects, Puriton West (4MW) and Summerway Drove (1.8MW), were developed by Element Power Solar in partnership with Dublin-based BNRG Renewables.
