The first combined PV-Wind Park in United Kingdom is waiting the approval of British authorities.

The UK energy company Ecotricity plans to build a PV farm at Fen Farm, Conisholme, near a wind park of 20 wind turbines. The plant will cover the area of 4.7 acres, and its construction should be completed 15 weeks after the approval of the East Lindsey District Council will be granted. Ecotricity plans to obtain a feed-in tariff of 29.3 p/kWh for the next 25 years for the electricity produced by the PV farm. Further consultations with the local population are required, but preliminary results show that the locals have a positive attitude toward this project.

Despite knowing the destruction and dangers their activities pose to our planet and people, fossil fuel companies have been driving climate change and hold the key to avoiding impending disaster. What this points to is the urgent need for divestment, in spite of skepticism amongst some leaders.
