Boom Power recently announced a proposal for a new solar farm in Fenwick, Doncaster, as part of their growing portfolio of renewable energy projects. With a total of over 1.5 gigawatts of solar, 2.5 gigawatt-hours of battery storage, and 2 gigawatts of co-located battery and solar projects.
Boom Power has obtained a grid connection of approximately 237.5 megawatts at Thorpe Marsh Power Station. The Fenwick Solar Farm, covering around 325 hectares in Fenwick, is expected to have a generation capacity of approximately 237.5 megawatts, which can power approximately 60,000 homes annually.
Boom Power plans to launch a non-statutory public consultation to gather feedback on the proposals. They have a proven track record of delivering renewable energy projects across the UK and are committed to further investment in this sector.
Boom Power has a strong track record of successfully implementing renewable energy projects throughout the UK. The upcoming Fenwick project will be the newest addition to their extensive portfolio, which includes projects in East Yorkshire and the recently approved Kenley Solar Farm in Hull. Boom Power is dedicated to further investing in this growing portfolio.
Boom Power is currently expecting to submit a Development Consent Order in Spring 2024 for the Fenwick Solar Farm. This project is considered a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project, requiring approval from both the Planning Inspectorate and the Secretary of State for Climate Change and Net Zero before construction can commence.
Since its establishment in 2019, Boom Power has been actively working on a pipeline of renewable energy projects that contribute to the UK’s efforts in clean power generation and achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Mark Hogan, Founder and Director of Boom Power said “Boom Power is committed to supporting the UK’s target to transition to an electricity system with 100% zero-carbon generation and a large proportion of this is to come from renewable energy.”
“Solar energy will play a critical role in achieving net zero by 2050 and developments like Fenwick Solar Farm are key to helping the UK achieve this target.”
