Helios Renewable Energy Project
The Helios Renewable Energy Project comprises a solar farm, alongside an Energy Storage System, to help manage and store electricity produced by the solar panels.
The scheme could deliver up to 250 MW of electricity, which is enough clean energy to power approximately 61,950 homes and will assist in tackling the climate emergency and to help the UK Government in meeting its target for net zero emissions by 2050.
The proposed site is located to the west of the village of Camblesforth and to the north of the village of Hirst Courtney in North Yorkshire. The development is situated within the administrative areas of Selby District Council and North Yorkshire County Council.
Due to the nature of the proposed Project, an application to the Planning Inspectorate will be submitted under the Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) regime (Planning Act 2008) in 2023.
