Ethical Power has actually commissioned a 5MW solar farm that will feed right into a green hydrogen electrolyser as part of the Dorset Green H2 project in England.

The Whites Pit project has been constructed in Wimborne for Canford Renewable Energy, a driver and programmer of energy framework across the South West consisting of renewables as well as gas power stations.

The Dorset Green H2 is their very first green hydrogen project as well as also the first center of this enter the region.

Ethical Power was the EPC specialist for the project built on now shut previous landfill had by Canford Renewable Energy.

The electricity created from the solar park will certainly feed into a 0.9 MW electrolyser to create circa 120,000 kg of green hydrogen each year.

On overcast days as well as overnight, the solar energy output on site will certainly be supplemented by gas created from the closed landfill site.
