We are pleased to announce that we have recently submitted a planning application for the installation of a 2.2MW solar farm on land near Treoes, in the Vale of Glamorgan. The application is on behalf of our clients Sybac Solar International GmbH, who are a German company beginning to invest in the UK market.
The scheme will involve the erection of around 9,000 solar panels on frames that are piled into the ground. These panels will have a generating capacity of 2.2MW, which is equivalent to the annual average usage of around 630 homes. The solar farm will be connected via underground cables to the existing electricity grid just outside the site.
It is the intention of Sybac and the landowner to create an ecologically-friendly solar farm, which will involve new hedgerow planting and the sowing of species-rich seed mixes. The fields around, between and underneath the solar panels will continue to be able to be grazed by sheep.
A decision on the planning application is expected to be made by the Vale of Glamorgan Council later in the spring.
CDN and their clients are actively looking for new solar farm opportunities. Should you be interested in discussing whether your land is suitable, please call Matthew Hard on 01792 830238 (or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
