Vattenfall adding solar to UK wind farm for a "mega" hybrid renewable energy park

in operation in the UK and the new solar farm will be added to that site, creating a hybrid mega renewable energy farm. The company said co-locating wind with solar power makes “technical sense”, as the wind and sun tend to generate clean power at different times. Essentially, a hybrid energy farm exploits the best of both worlds, taking advantage of the levels of wind and solar energy that fluctuate with the seasons. The solar farm will also use the same grid connection as the wind farm, which cuts down on costs.
