Facility will deliver peak power output of 408kW

Construction will conclude in June on a large scale solar park in Buckinghamshire. A deal for the procurement of the park was completed last week by Heatons law firm.

SOLON will develop the facility on an old RAF airfield at Westcott Venture Park. The solar company is responsible for the design, construction and operation of the plant as well as the manufacture and delivery of the solar modules themselves.

Once fully functional the park will deliver a peak power output of around 408kW

Construction partner James Flynn, who advised SOLON on the project, said:

“This deal represents one of the few large-scale solar projects to go ahead in the UK following the government’s publication of its plans to reduce the feed-in tariff for large scale solar plants. It is fantastic that the parties involved have managed to continue with this project. 

“We hope this will encourage others within the industry to follow suit, and that the project can be used as an example with which to encourage the government to change its attitude to large scale solar projects.”
