The Manor Solar Farm near Silton to open doors as part of nationwide Solar Independence Day

I am writing to you to invite you to our solar farm open day on Saturday 4th July between 10am and 4pm at Manor Farm (Church Road, Silton, Dorset, SP8 5PR), hosted by renewable energy developer Lightsource Renewable Energy as part of Solar Independence Day.
A series of Solar Independence Day open days are taking place across the country on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th July, led by the Solar Trade Association. The open days include a housing estate in Northumberland, a farm building in Perthshire, a community solar farm in Hampshire and a further education college in Edinburgh.

The Manor Solar Farm open day is a unique opportunity to understand how an operational solar farm works on a day-to-day basis and see first-hand how the solar farm works in harmony with the local rural environment, whilst supporting the landowner’s agricultural business.
The Manor Farm solar installation has a capacity of 4.9MW, which is enough to provide clean, renewable power to 1,400 homes. The solar farm was installed over the course of just 6 weeks after being commissioned on 28th March 2014.
We would love for you to come along and to meet some of the Lightsource team. Hot and cold refreshments will be available throughout the course of the day and guests will be able to join us for a hog roast at lunchtime (vegetarian and gluten-free options will be available on request).
Spaces on the open day are limited and therefore we would kindly ask that you RSVP by giving me a call on 01225 422243 or by emailing We would also kindly request that you take this opportunity to let us know if you have any specific dietary or access requirements.
Otherwise, if you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call or send me an email using the details above.

Yours sincerely,
