Solar Frequently Asked Questions

Solar Project

The Bendemeer Renewable Energy Hub team have created a space for Frequently Asked Questions about the solar project asked by the community to be answered all in one place. The FAQ page can also be found in the Solar Fact Book, that has been developed for the solar project to give community members and residents a greater understanding of the project. These books will be updated as the projects progress.


An online copy of the fact book can be found here – Solar Fact Book
