Assessment and Determination of Planning Application
The planning application was granted consent on 15 January 2021
Construction is planned to commence in 2023
Walpole Bank solar farm would provide renewable electricity for distribution to the National Grid. This project will generate 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.
