Our DCO application, which is the first DCO solar project developed by EDF Renewables in the UK, was submitted in February 2022 following 18 months of engagement and consultation with stakeholders and communities.
Capable of providing enough clean, secure energy to power over 96,000 homes* every year, Longfield will make an important contribution to the UK’s future energy mix.
It will also kick-start a programme of research to look at the positive impacts large-scale solar farms can have on biodiversity and wildlife in the UK. The research will tie into Longfield’s plans and commitments to deliver substantial biodiversity enhancements through habitat restoration and management.
