    Orsted and PS Renewables are soliciting opinions regarding a 740MW solar project in the UK

    Orsted and PS Renewables have unveiled revised plans for a 740MW solar venture situated in central England. This collaborative effort aims to introduce the One Earth Solar Farm, accompanied by pertinent battery storage and infrastructure, primarily positioned in Nottinghamshire.

     

    The initiative is set to link with the National Grid via the High Marnham substation. It’s important to note that the project remains in its preliminary development phase.

     

    In Autumn 2023, the developers initiated the first phase of consultations regarding the initial project proposals. Insights garnered from this consultation phase, coupled with ongoing environmental and technical evaluations, have steered the refinement of the proposals. These updated plans are now open for a second round of ‘statutory’ consultation, scheduled from May 29th to July 9th, 2024.

     

    Co-owner of PS Renewables, Matt Hazell, commented “We are excited to launch the second consultation for One Earth Solar Farm. We appreciate everyone who took the time to provide feedback during the first consultation.”

     

    “We considered the feedback we received carefully and have made a number of significant changes to the project, which we will present during this second consultation.”

     

    “We encourage anyone with an interest in the proposals to meet with us during this statutory consultation and share their views on our updated proposals.”

     

    Randall Linfoot,Orsted, added “In line with our other projects, we want to work with local residents, community groups, and elected officials to ensure that the project is developed in a way that is sensitive to the community and environment, and that the benefits of the project are felt in the local area.”

     

    In January 2024, a freshly ratified National Policy Statement for Energy was implemented, categorizing large-scale solar initiatives such as One Earth as ‘vital national priorities.’ This designation is aimed at bolstering the objective of expanding solar development by fivefold, a key step in decarbonizing the power sector by 2035, in alignment with the UK’s legally binding commitment to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

     

    Given that the project is projected to generate more than 50MW of energy, it falls under the classification of a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). Consequently, it necessitates a Development Consent Order (DCO) from the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero.
