Project Overview

Helios has its own website which can be accessed HERE.

Helios would provide renewable electricity for distribution to the National Grid and would generate a significant amount of energy each year of the proposed 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.
