Following local planning authority approval for the solar farm on the edge of the village, Alpington with Yelverton Parish Council negotiated with Lightsource SPV 15 Limited (the solar farm operator) for the provision of Community Benefit funding to the parish. The value of this funding is based upon an annual payment of £1,125 per megawatt of installed capacity for 20 years. In real terms this equates to a payment of approximately £8,000 each year to be managed by the Parish Council for the benefit of the community.
