Britain’s largest solar farm is currently wending its way through the planning system.

Not only will it be the biggest at 350MW and 890 acres, but crucially it will include battery storage of 700 MWh. And it is the prospect of this that is frightening local residents, as this open letter from the local doctor explains:

A copy of this letter was passed to Philip Bratby by the Chairman of CPRE Kent (Campaign to Protect Rural England), who are taking the threat seriously.

I cannot comment on the technical aspects, but I very much doubt any other industrial project would be allowed to get away with this sort of endangerment of public health.
