West Sussex County council Solar projects.
According to the County Council’s latest solar generation report for the 2021/22 financial year, its renewable energy systems generated more than 16,000 MWh of clean electricity for the grid, which is enough to power more than 5,500 average UK homes. This prevented 3,700 tonnes of CO2te being released into the atmosphere compared to generating the same amount of electricity from fossil fuels. By selling much of the electricity to the grid and making use of its batteries at Westhampnett solar farm, the County Council earned more than £2.5 million after running costs during 2021/22. This is helping to offset, but not completely cover, the increase in the authority’s own energy bill.
Horsham District Council News
Horsham District Council has supported some 27 farmers and land managers to secure £500,000 of government funding for a landscape recovery programme to improve the River Adur.
The funding will support plans that will restore nature, reduce flood risks, improve water quality, and boost biodiversity. It will support farmers and landowners to explore how new features and habitats can be created on their land, and to improve the health of the soil through regenerative farming techniques.
The Shipley Reliquary, a fine example of Limoges enamel dating from the 13th century, is now on display at Horsham Museum and Art Gallery in their newly re-opened Medieval Gallery.
Generously loaned from Shipley Parochial Church Council, this reliquary will be one of the most historically important exhibits in the museum, attracting visitors to Horsham from all over the world. It presents an opportunity to bring to life Horsham and the District during the de Braose’s era.
