... NextEnergy Solar Fund takes great care in developing and implementing effective biodiversity measures, with almost half of invertebrate pollinator species facing extinction, NESF recognise that action required to reduce biodiversity loss has never been more important.

In addition to a wide range of biodiversity initiatives, NESF have set up 28 beehives on a number of solar farms across the south of the UK, including Devon, Essex and Somerset. Solar Farm Honey has been farmed from honey bees located on the solar sites since 2017 and managed by the British Beekeeper’s Association, a dedicated team with a shared passion for the health and welfare of honey bees. So far, Solar Farm Honey has been farmed from over 1 million bees, and has also supported the ongoing training and development of multiple beekeepers across the UK.
