Anesco breaks ground on 110MW solar projects with Gresham House



UK solar and storage company Anesco has broken ground on four solar power plants with a combined output of 110 MW as part of land-based development and construction cooperation Gresham House.

The sites are the first in the partnership’s construction phase.

The four sites in the UK are the 50 MW Low Farm in Skegness, the 20 MW Beavor Grange in Devon and two 20 MW solar farms in Derbyshire and Gloucestershire.

All four sites are planned to be built by the end of 2023 and have a lifespan of 40 years, after which they will be returned to their natural state.

Each site will benefit from an advanced biodiversity plan and significant ecological improvements designed to support some of the UK’s most at-risk birds and wildlife and native flora. This includes creating wildflower meadows, planting additional hedges and trees, and installing bird and bat boxes. For Low Farm, these improvements are expected to result in a net biodiversity gain of over 130%.

Anesco is responsible for the design, procurement and construction of the four solar power plants. Each site is overseen by Anesco’s operations and maintenance team, who work with Anesco’s optimization team to ensure that factories are operating at optimum technical efficiency.

“We are delighted to see our partnership with Anesco take this important step forward, with construction now officially underway on the first four projects,” said Wayne Cranstone, Gresham House’s Chief Investment Officer. “All four solar farms have been sensitively developed, with special attention paid to biodiversity and quality construction to improve their performance and efficiency.”
