Salford Road Solar Farm

Visit our Solar Farm and see how sunlight is converted into electricity to help power our facilities and help towards our carbon reduction targets

A visit includes:

  • An hour tour of the Solar Farm
  • See how sunlight is being used to generate electricity
  • Find out how the site fits in with the waste contract in Greater Manchester
  • Find out what happens in the adjacent waste facilities and Recycling Centre

Visits are suitable for:

  • Groups within the Greater Manchester waste contract area (which excludes Wigan)
  • Further Education groups studying environmental and STEM subjects (Years 12 and 13)
  • Higher Education students
  • Adult community groups

Consideration will also be made for groups to visit from subject specific Key Stage 4 (High School) groups as appropriate

Have you considered an online session with one of our education officers instead?
