In regard to the design of the array, each of the solar panels will be mounted on a fixed panel system. The panels are covered by high-transparency solar glass with an anti-reflective coating that minimises glare and glint while aiding in the maximum absorption of the available sunlight. The panels are dark grey-blue in colour and are mounted on a frame of anodised aluminium alloy and galvanised steel. The eastern boundary has also been rounded off to ensure the rise in topography to the east of the site does not result in direct views of the site from the south and the west, as shown on the indicative site layout plan below. Landscaping will also be proposed for the eastern site boundary as well as other enhancements to increase biodiversity net gain throughout the site.
