A decrepit tin mine in the southwest of England is gradually being transformed into a plant for renewable energy.

A 7.2 acre plot at Wheal Jane, Truro in Cornwall, England, will soon become the site of a 1.4 megawatt solar power plant. Built on the site of an old tin mine, the power plant is a joint venture of Solarcentury and UK-based solar developer Lightsource Renewable Energy. Derry Newman, CEO of Solarcentury, explains the symbolic nature of the old tin mine as the location of the power plant project:

To see a tin mine diversify into producing 21st Century clean solar energy, provides an optimistic glimpse of where we’re now heading for our energy production. Wheal Jane’s solar farm demonstrates that solar technology can contribute to our clean energy future, and quickly. Solarcentury designed and constructed this site, powering over 400 homes, in less than two months. Solar is not to be underestimated; it is the fastest growing energy technology in the world, simply because it is clean, reliable and a readily available alternative to fossil fuels.
