Guy Ritchie’s Planned Solar Array Considered A Disturbance

In an effort to be environmentally responsible, or to receive the 10 percent tax break, Guy Ritchie submitted an application to erect 200 solar panels at his Ashcombe House estate in the UK. The estate, in which Ritchie purchased with Madonna in 2001, would be completely solar powered.

While Ritchie probably thought that environmentalists would be happy about his initiatives, he was surely wrong when ecologist Louisa Kilgallen stepped forward and advised against it.

In a report that Kilgallen submitted to the Wiltshire County Council where Ritchie lives, she stated that the site where the solar panels would be erected falls within Ashcombe Bottom East County Wildlife Site, and could damage fragile grasslands. While the site is not protected by law, it is given protection through County Councils.

The solar panels are the latest part of Ritchie’s plans to make Ashcombe completely self-sufficient. The final decision is expected to be made on October 12 by the “planning chiefs.”
