Armthorpe Lane solar farm would provide renewable electricity for distribution to the National Grid via the substation at Thorpe Marsh. This project will generate energy each year of the proposed 40 years of operational life, while also providing significant carbon dioxide savings when compared to generation of electricity by non-renewable sources.
The proposals include battery storage which will allow energy to be stored on site at times when grid-demand is lower and exported at times of higher demand to ensure no energy is ‘lost’ and help balance the National Grid.
Comprising approximately 21.2 hectares of land, there no statutory landscape, heritage or ecological designations on site, as part of our site surveys and further assessments we will be considering these matters carefully in developing our proposals for consultation.
The development forms a temporary (40 year) use of land that is easily reversed at the end of the operational life. A scheme of landscape and ecological improvements will be prepared to support the application, ensuring the project provides a biodiversity net gain.
