Solar Farms

If you have an in-road to a Solar Farm, whether just a contact to a piece of land or already have DNO approval, Sold on Renewables have the required expertise and resources to take a project right through to completion.

The Solar market in the UK is assisted by government incentives in the form of Feed in Tariff payments made against generated electricity on installations up to 5Mw and these are linked to RPI for 20 years. Larger sites are assisted by the issue on Renewable Obligation Certificates and these are a trade-able bond that can be cashed at any time now or in the future.

The electricity generated can also be sold through Power Purchase agreements with energy companies. These can be contracted to run for up to 20 years on market variable rates with an initial 5 year fixed rate available if required to suit the owner requirements.
