    EDF Renewables signs a PPA with NatWest.

    A corporate PPA between EDF Renewables UK and NatWest has been signed for over 50MW of energy from the Porth Wen Solar Farm on Anglesey, North Wales.


    EDF Business Solutions will provide services for power balancing and shaping.


    Already under way, construction is scheduled to be finished in 2023.


    According to EDF Renewables UK, more than 60% of the labourers employed during the enabling and civil works were locals who lived less than an hour away from the project. Once finished, the 190-acre land will be suitable for sheep grazing.


    The team will also establish a mile-long wildlife corridor, planting hedgerows, wildflowers, and woodlands on the property to increase biodiversity.


    Matthieu Hue, Chief executive of EDF Renewables UK, said: “We are delighted to be working with NatWest.”


    “This project demonstrates our ability to develop solar in the UK through innovative routes to market, to provide solutions for our customers in terms of low cost renewable energy while helping to de-carbonise the UK electricity system.”


    Director of climate change at NatWest Group, James Close, said “We are pleased to be working with EDF Renewables UK to deliver the Porth Wen Solar Farm.”


    “When it is completed later this year, it will supply the grid with renewable electricity equivalent to the usage of 9,500 average UK homes.”


    “As well as producing low carbon electricity, the solar farm project will also enhance local biodiversity and nature in Anglesey.”
