We have proposed to develop a new high quality solar photovoltaic (PV) farm with battery storage at Fobbing, SS17 9HZ.

Projects  > Fobbing

Introducing Fobbing Solar Farm

The generating station would have an export capacity of up to 49.9MW for distribution to the national grid. This is equivalent to the annual electrical needs of approximately 17,079 family homes. The anticipated CO2 displacement is around 25,000 tonnes per annum, which represents an emission saving equivalent of a reduction in 8,035 cars on the road every year.

The battery storage system will supply electricity to the local electricity network at times of peak energy demand and help make the renewable energy output of the solar farm a secure and reliable part of the UK energy supply.

We have now submitted our planning application for Fobbing Solar Farm to both Thurrock Council and Basildon Borough Council. Our application is pending validation.

The Benefits 

The Solar Farm will make a significant impact on national and local renewable energy targets. To see a full breakdown of the benefits of the proposal, please clike ‘more’ below. 


Community Benefit

We believe that it’s right that the community closest to a solar farm is able to benefit from it. In addition we believe that the community itself is best placed to say what the community benefit should be. If you have an idea for a sustainable community based scheme or project, then please do let us know by getting in contact with us via the form at the bottom of this page.
