There’s a lot of it around…

A recent article in a ‘Clean Energy Pipeline’ email noted how asset management firm Gresham House and renewables developer Anesco, plan to deploy 200 MW of new subsidy-free solar. The news is more about how they will be collaborating in a competitive and growing market, than the proliferation of solar. Another article in the Summer, reported that the pipeline of new large-scale solar sites is more than 9GW in the UK.

For those who have trouble thinking in giga-anythings, that is equivalent to a lot of solar generation. We know the demand is there today and we know it will increase, so the growth is understandable. The interest is understandable too – investing in an asset with as assured a future as can reasonably be expected, carries greater potential for return and less risk than many alternatives. The value to an organisation of being seen to be working to reduce emissions and supporting the climate change agenda is a further reason to make the investment decision.

We at APSE Energy have just this week delivered a phase 1 report to two councils who are ready to take a decision about moving to Phase 2 of a solar farm project and start looking seriously at having a farm up and generating within 2 years.

We know this isn’t something local authorities do every day of the week, but more than a dozen have now got their own solar farms, so why not yours?

There is plenty of experience and expertise within the sector that you can tap into - not only from APSE Energy.

You need some land of course (and even if you don’t have it now you can buy it) and nearly all of the councils we have worked with have come to us with a small number of sites and found one which has potential for a viable project.

We are happy to have a quick chat to go through the basics. For a few minutes of your time you could tap into a great income generating opportunity and a large emissions reduction. Why wait?
