Leasing your land for a renewable energy development is an opportunity to earn a secure, long-term income while supporting the urgent drive to decarbonise electricity generation.

Renewable energy developments are typically based on a 40-year agreement, supporting the success of rural communities for generations to come.

We work with you to understand what you want to achieve with your land, then we consult the local community and apply for planning permission. At the end of the development’s lifespan, the infrastructure is removed and the land is returned in the same, or better, condition than when it was built.

Your contribution

Why build a solar farm on your land?

Earn a regular income from your land

Make the most of your land by using it to support the generation of renewable energy and earn an annual income for decades.

Support the drive to Net Zero

Your land can make an important contribution to achieving the national target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Help the local council

Using your land to generate renewable energy helps your local Council to meet its targets of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Improve biodiversity on your land

Installing a solar farm allows intensively farmed land to rest while biodiversity is improved with a site-specific management plan.

Your land

How does it work?

We work with you at every stage, taking the lead to ensure the smooth running of what can be a time-consuming process. The steps involved include:

  • Arranging the lease of your land
  • Consulting the community
  • Preparing a planning application

If the planning application is successful, the next step is procurement, engineering and construction of the renewable energy development (often, but not always, a solar farm).
