What: To provide 1.2 MW (MegaWatt) ground-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) on leased land, working with land-owner.

How: Working with a delivery partner to enable upfront funding of project, and on-going support. Various parties are involved including WPD (Western Power Distribution) for approval of grid connection.

Carbon Saving not applicable

Further Information: The total capital cost of the project is estimated at around £720K. Revenues will depend on the final business model and partnering arrangements. Assuming (1) 300gCO2/kWh as the average carbon intensity of the UK grid (at 1st January 2020); (2) net utilisation factor of 10% against the badge power rating. Then with 10%*8,000 hr/yr * 1,200kW = 960,000 kWh/yr; then, 0.3 kgCO2/kWh * 960,000 kWh/yr = 288,000 kgCO2/yr = 288 tonnesCO2/yr.
