May 27 (Renewables Now) - British independent power producer Conrad Energy has secured planning consent for a an up to 45-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project in England’s Herefordshire County Council.
Larport solar farm will be the company’s “first significant strategic solar development,” it said in a press release earlier this week. The project has been approved unanimously by the Council.
To be located at a 120-acre (48.6-ha) site in Dormington, the PV park is expected to generate enough electricity to cover the consumption of more than 11,000 homes per year, while mitigating close to 10,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The plant will be connected to the grid via the existing Clay Hill Pit substation located in the vicinity. No details were given about the scheme's construction schedule and commissioning.
Conrad Energy operates flexible power generation and storage assets and provides route to market services for similar plants and renewable power projects. The company says on its website it has a 600-MW portfolio of flexible generation assets across 45 sites.
