Project Overview

Denmead solar farm would provide renewable electricity for distribution to the National Grid via the Lovedean Substation. This project would have 40 years of operational life, while also providing a substantial 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 87 hectares of land, there are no statutory landscape, heritage or ecological designations on site. 

The development forms a temporary use of farmland 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. 

Access to the site will be using existing access Broadway Lane, Anmore Lane, Edneys Lane and Old Mill Lane with construction expected to take 7 months.
