UK solar developer JBM Solar said today it has sold two subsidy-free solar and co-located battery storage projects totalling 99.8 MW in the UK to German renewables company BayWa re AG.
The Corner Copse project is situated near Swindon and the other scheme, called Scurf Dyke, is sited north of Hull. They are both fully consented and are expected to go live in 2023. The facilities will feature bifacial module technology and deliver enough power to meet the annual needs of 28,000 UK homes, the developer estimates.
Financial details of the deal were not provided. BayWa re UK Ltd managing director Gordon MacDougall said the acquisition is an important part of the company’s continued development and investment in its pipeline.
According to the announcement, the projects have been developed as part of the objective of Susgen-funded JBM Solar to deliver its 2-GW UK pipeline in the next three years.
