Solar Farms – Last Chance Saloon? May 2014

Solar Farms – Last Chance Saloon?

The announcement by Government of proposals to stop current support for large scale ground mounted Solar farms from April next year (leaving them to navigate the untried and untested proposal for ‘Contracts for Difference’) has thrown a spanner into the works of the fast growing solar industry.

If you have been considering solar but have been in two minds, and have suitable land (25 acres or more, outside designated areas, relatively flat and well hidden from neighbours, without footpaths and most importantly near or under a 33kV power line) you should urgently contact Oliver Harwood – he might be able to help you secure a scheme.

But do not delay: while a solar farm can be built in 8 weeks, the planning and grid connection negotiations take at least 6 months – hence the urgency.

Happily, Government has affirmed its continuing support for roof mounted solar, where profits can be made, especially where investors can make use of the energy that they generate.

Oliver Harwood can help clients put sustainable schemes together.
