Meridian News are reporting that after 41 years, Fawley Power Station will be closing in March 2013.
They say that it hadn’t been due to close until 2015, but due to market conditions was closing earlier than anticipated.
Apparently there is no word yet on what will happen to the site once the power station is closed.
We realise that it’s not to everyone’s taste, but understand that some residents along the North coast of the Island have enjoyed the views of the power station over the last 40 years.
It’ll be interesting to see whether the sunsets from the North of the Island change as a result of the closure ;-)
