Worthy Farm in Somerset best known as the home of Glastonbury Festival, is now also the home of the largest privately owned solar power station in the UK.
Festival founder Michael Eavis has installed over 1000, solar panels on his cowsheds capable of producing up to 200kw of power, the equivalent needed to power 40 homes.
As those who have been to Glastonbury will know, Worthy Farm is not known for its sunny day, but as Eavis pointed out with that many solar panels even on a rainy day they are still able to produce 37kw.
Turning the land from a festival site into a power station is all part of Glastonbury's green ethos. Eavis decided to go ahead and install what is now now the largest privately owned solar power station in the UK, when the government introduced a feed-in tariff scheme. This scheme rewards people for generating solar power.
After an initial investment of nearly £600,000, it is hoped the farm will make £45,000 each year.
