EMBERTON SOLAR PARK 
 
In February 2014 Inazin Power were given permission by Milton Keynes Council to provide renewable energy from a large scale solar photovoltaic (PV) farm on a site covering 18ha in area at Rectory Farm, Emberton. The site comprised a series of rows of solar arrays, together with necessary structures housing inverters and transformers and other ancillary development, including fencing, security cameras, access tracks and cable route to connect to the grid. 
 
The site had the potential for an export capacity in the region of 8 MW of electricity, sufficient to provide the power needs of approximately 1,580 average UK households and save in the region of 4,100 tonnes of carbon dioxide that would otherwise be generated through the use of traditional fossil fuels. 
 
Through discussions with the developer, the parish council were able to secure a community fund to be used for the benefit of the residents of Emberton and Petsoe End. 
 
The community benefit fund is administered by a committee of the parish council. The committee meets quarterly in January, April, July and October and welcomes applications from community groups and individuals. The application form and criteria for funding can be found here
