Big energy development is often imposed on local communities, who find they have little say in the matter. Fracking, nuclear, big transmission lines - or even oversize, poorly sited solar or wind development - can lead people to fight back. The folks in Balcombe set up a blockade to keep the frackers out - but they also took power into their own hands and created a locally owned solution. So the Chiddingly Farm solar power station was born.
