Construction is underway at the Agard Solar Farm at Crown farm, Bagworth Road, Nailstone, Leicestershire.
The project, which was granted consent on the 29th September will have an installed capacity 5MW and will be capable of meeting the equivalent electricity needs of approximately 1500 homes (based on annual average electricity consumption figures from Ofgem) for a 25 year period. At the end of its lifespan, the project will be fully decommissioned and restored to its former condition.
Construction will be overseen by Solarplicity, who have now taken over the ownership of this project. Solarplicity, who expect to complete the construction of this project within 8 - 12 weeks, have assumed all responsibility for project, including all planning and community obligations.
