What is Longfield Solar Farm?

Longfield Solar Farm is a proposed new solar energy farm, co-located with battery storage. The proposals include grid infrastructure to connect Longfield Solar Farm to the National Grid and any necessary and appropriate environmental mitigation. We also need to secure development consent for infrastructure needed for building and maintaining Longfield Solar Farm such as construction compounds and site offices.

We have secured a grid connection agreement which would allow us to export or import up to 500MW of electricity to and from the National Grid. The proposed generation capacity of the scheme means it is a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) – we set out more information on this on the Planning process page.
