Solar Farms – a Toxic Blot on Devon’s precious landscape

Our new video in which TV star John Nettles lambasts the solar farms threatening to ruin Devon’s countryside is OUT NOW, coinciding with a MailOnline exposé of the solar farm industry across the UK, published early this morning-30th May 2021

Our 8-minute video, presented by the Bergerac and Midsomer Murders actor, questions the validity of what the Mail accurately describes as ‘toxic blots’ on our landscape – massive commercial installations which turn a vast profit for landowners, developers and local authorities.

If you care about Devon’s countryside and want to arm yourself with the facts about the ‘green’ claims made by the developers of these vast ‘white elephants’, we urge you to read the Mail article and WATCH AND SHARE our video.

If solar farms are so good for converting sun to electricity to help solve a global issue, surely they should be sited in those places in the world where the sun is strongest – NOT sacrificing rainy Devon’s precious green farmland just to make a vast profit?

Please join us in objecting to this and the other current proposals throughout the county, which total 1,000 acres approx of our precious farmland in Torridge, North Devon, Mid Devon and East Devon. Let’s keep Devon’s fields green. And please join Devon CPRE – our countryside needs you!

We’d like to thank John so much for spearheading our important campaign to protect Devon’s countryside from these unwanted and inefficient industrial installations.
