National Solar Centre Opens In Cornwall
8:01am 5th May 2013
Cornwall becomes a major player in booming renewable energy projects.
A new National Solar Centre has been opened in St Austell.
The industry is expected to be worth over £21 billion by 2020.
Director Barry Marsh said the Duchy will be at the centre of developments.
"It's about generating electricity for the use of Cornish people, and hopefully increasing the capacity of the grid down here. But moreover, it's about building jobs and building new revenue streams for the Cornish people.
"Cornwall does have the most sunshine, believe it or not, in statistical terms. So, we've seen alot of solar activity in Cornwall, so it's managed to get a lot of experience in the solar industry."
