Today (28th September 2018) the Kent Combined Heat and Power Plant was officially opened by Cllr. Sue Chandler, Chairman of Dover District Council, in the presence of local MP, Craig Mackinlay and Veronica Liote, Mayor of Sandwich and members of Sandwich Town Council. The power plant generates 27MW of renewable electricity using locally sourced wood as fuel, which is the equivalent of supplying 50,000 homes and saving over 100,000 tons of CO2 every year. The plant provides heat and power to the Discovery Park, Kent’s leading Science Park, with the excess being exported to the local electricity grid.
