UK Solar (Hartwell) LLP connects 18.6MW solar farm to the grid

UK Solar (Hartwell) LLP has connected an 18.6MWp solar farm in Hartwell, Northamptonshire.

The project is situated on a 103-acre site and is expected to generate around 18.5 million kilowatt hours of renewable energy per year, sufficient to power approximately 5,500 homes.

Armstrong Energy advised on the project which was constructed by Lark Energy, one of the leading developers and contractors in the UK solar market, using panels manufactured by Q-Cells.

The project has been designed to operate in synergy with the surrounding farmland over the course of its 25 year life, after which the equipment will be removed and the site restored to its original state.

Andrew Newman, Director of Armstrong Energy, commented “This is the largest project we have connected to date, and is a testament to how well we continue to work with Lark Energy.”
