Solar Farm For Flaxmere?

A potential solar power farm could help reduce heating costs for 400 low income houses in Flaxmere.

The project, Power to the People, is run through St Andrew’s Church in Hastings, and is proposing building a two-hectare Photovoltaic (PV) solar farm on the outskirts of the suburb.

Project Manager Chris Lambourne said the project would help around 1500 individuals in 400 houses stay warm over winter.

“The people who we are going to be engaging with would be people who have health issues and are on social benefits, people with the worst indicators of social deprivation.”
