UK solar developer Boom Power Ltd has secured planning permission for two solar farms with a combined capacity of some 90 MW, located in the councils of Selby District and Kirklees in Yorkshire.
The Osgodby project of more than 40 MW AC and the 49.9-MW AC Low Farm scheme form part of Boom Power’s renewable pipeline, which is now moving close to 3 GW in the UK alone, the company said. Construction of the facilities is expected to start in early 2023, with Boom Power having already made long lead-time supply chain commitments.
“The two consented solar projects follow on from our announcement earlier this month of our forthcoming project of national significance, East Yorkshire Solar Farm, which represents 400 MW (AC capacity). In parallel, the team are working on a battery energy storage system in Wales which again, if successful, will provide over 600 MWh of energy infrastructure to the electricity network,” remarked Boom Power’s founder and director Mark Hogan. In September, Boom Power launched a non-statutory consultation for the East Yorkshire Solar Farm.
Investment outfit Pelion Green Future is Boom Power’s joint venture shareholder and partner.
