Horse power meets solar power

Sunday 7 June, Berriewood Horse Trials, Condover, Shrewsbury

Horse power meets solar power. That’s Daisy ridden by Team GB member Oliver Townend en route to winning the BE100 class (section G) at the Berriewood Horse Trials.

Oliver, who stables are based at Ellesmere, Shropshire is jumping the Lightsource Renewable Energy complex, with the Condover Airfield solar farm featured in the background, installed and managed by Lightsource. Over 500 horse and rider combinations took part in the horse trials on the weekend.

The solar farm is capable of powering over 6,000 households.
