Tunisia solar energy may soon power up UK homes

A solar farm in Tunisia could soon provide energy to around 2.5 million homes in the UK. It is said to be 20 per cent cheaper than other sources



A Tunisian solar power project could soon provide homes in the UK with energy. If approved by the British government, the project could see up to 2.5 million UK homes benefit from solar energy by the year 2018.

TuNur is a partnership between British renewables investor Low Carbon, developer Nur Energie, and Tunisian investors.

Kevin Sara, chief executive of TuNur had this to say of the project, “This is a serious project. Yes, it is risky like any big energy project is risky.”

TuNur says that they will provide energy that is 20 per cent cheaper than other sources.
