It is renewable, uses no water, creates no pollution, makes virtually no noise and releases zero emissions.
Solar’s impact on the surrounding environment can be negligible if sited properly, with relatively small structures blending into the surrounding countryside through careful landscaping.
Solar is the only form of electricity generation that doesn’t require extreme heat, high pressure or fast-moving parts giving it a long life, without high initial construction costs. Like hydro dams, solar farms will deliver valuable energy for generations, without the generational costs.
New Zealand is well placed geographically to support utility solar. Each of Lodestone’s solar farms are in the country’s sunbelt, between the 34th and 39th parallel, placing them at the equivalent latitude of the Mediterranean and Southern California where solar generation is common.
