Focus on Lakeside Country Park  DSC 0077 M

Lakeside Country Park is 60 acres of lakes, wet meadow and woodland situated along Wide Lane between Eastleigh and Southampton.

We did our first installation of solar photovoltaics (PV) and solar thermal here in 2005. It was subject to a installation grant from the Government and is not eligible for the Feed-in Tariff. It is still going today supplying all of the hot water requirements and some of the electricity which the Visitors Centre requires.

There are many water sports available at Lakeside and the solar thermal panels supply the hot water for the showers and toilets which are used by people doing these activities.

Go to our Lakeside Country Park pages to find out more about visiting the park.
