Solar Power Portal spoke exclusively to Big60Million's CEO, Toddington Harper about the company’s newly-launched Big60Million scheme.

The Big60Million project aims to allow UK residents to directly benefit from the deployment of solar farms. Willersey Solar Farm, one of the solar farms that opened up its gates to the public on Solar Independence Day, will be the first Big60Million project released by the company.

Watch the full interview with Toddington below:

Big60Million is issuing a bond that it claims will provide a fixed 7% interest rate for five years, with the additional option to reinvest after five years. Harper noted that the company is excited by the launch of the scheme and that it is “looking forward to the opportunity of developing additional Big60Million projects to benefit more communities”.
