Conrad Energy, a flexible electricity provider, has received planning approval for its first solar project in Herefordshire, England.
According to Conrad Energy, the 45MW Larport solar farm would result in a “significant biodiversity net gain,” with 40 hectares of native wildflower grassland being produced to help local flora and animals thrive.
Councillor Terry James, chair of Herefordshire Planning and Regulatory Committee, noted during the planning meeting that the applicant’s communication with the two parish councils before the application was made “had been an exemplar.”
Conrad Energy owns and operates flexible energy generation and storage facilities, as well as providing route to market services for similar plants and renewable energy projects.
Commercial and industrial users can also benefit from flexible energy solutions generated on-site, as well as competitive and personalised supply contracts.
Chris Shears, Conrad Energy’s development director, said “This exciting development leverages the solar experience of our team and reflects our vision for Conrad Energy as a full-service power solutions provider, supporting both the grid as well as commercial and industrial customers.”
