Plans for a public consultation for a solar farm with battery in the UK’s east Midlands have been unveiled by EDF Renewables and Luminous Energy.
Springwell Solar Farm, located between Lincoln and Sleaford, has an output capacity of up to 800 MW, which equates to enough electricity to power around half of all the households in Lincolnshire.
Beginning on January 24, there will be a six-week consultation period on the preliminary plans for the Springwell Solar Farm.
The ideas for Springwell will be shaped by community input, which will also help to identify potential advantages that it might promote in the neighbourhood.
Ben Fawcett,Head of Solar at EDF Renewables UK, said “At EDF Renewables UK, we’re passionate about creating a future where clean energy powers our lives.”
“Springwell Solar Farm would produce much needed low-carbon electricity here in the UK, helping to power thousands of homes and businesses every year.”
“We are currently at a very early stage on Springwell, with local views vital to helping us develop our plans.”
“We encourage everyone to get involved in the upcoming consultation to find out more about Springwell and let us know their thoughts.”
Jolyon Orchard, CEO of Luminous Energy, added “We are looking forward to working with EDF Renewables UK and the local community to create a scheme that delivers affordable, clean energy.”
