  9. 9. o  Lessons learned!o  DECC changes to tariffs changed everything last year, post-planning approval"o  Intense time pressure coupled with excessive demands from county archaeologist forced design changes to foundations (these won’t be as visible after grass cover established by spring)"o  Time pressure also forced change to connection point – building and connecting a new substation to local grid could not have happened before tariff cut deadline. Honda provided that option with existing facility."o  Some residents understandably disappointed to lose opportunity to buy locally-produced green energy"o  New ROC funding scheme allows bigger projects with certainty beyond March 2013."o  Construction partner was chosen too quickly, too sloppy, too dismissive of residents’ needs and will not be used again"o  Delays in clearing snagging list, partly due to inhospitable weather conditions, meant spring planting season was missed for 2012. It will be in full bloom in summer 2013."© aee renewables plc / september 2012 / p.9

We can work with local schools to there is diversification of fauna and educate and inspire the younger generation about flora as the site thrives without the benefits of renewable energy and why it is fertiliser for the life of the project important to our future. o  We can provide the village hall with solar modules if the community are o  Site visits are available on request to local interested in being provided more schools and organisations to learn about solar renewable energy. This would mostly parks as a valuable, functioning member of the export electricity to the grid (low world’s energy portfolio daytime usage), thereby reducing costs for the community. o  We can provide useful information for schools to o  Active reduction of carbon footprint incorporate into the classroom, to help in o  PV systems are one of the quietest subjects such as mathematics and science. renewable technologies and visually unobtrusive energy plants. o  Solar farms can be built on a given premises without the need to carry out extensive ground restructuring, meaning the decommissioning phase is quicker and cheaper."© aee renewables plc / september 2012 / p.10
