The planning application for the smart energy grid project at St Ives Park and Ride has been validated and will be released shortly for consultation

Our planning application for the construction of a Smart Energy Grid at the St Ives Park + Ride site has just been validated.  The project consists of solar PV on canopies above the parking areas, battery storage, additional electric vehicle chargers and sale of excess electricity.  The site will also get a lighting upgrade.  This milestone has been reached after months of design and development of the project with our partners, Bouygues Energies and Services based in Cambridge.  The application will shortly go out for consultation and we'll be talking to the public about the project in events in St Ives.  A decision from the planners is expected in July 2017.  We also anticipate a decision on the grant funding that will make the project possible in July.
