Since the launch of the UK feed-in tariffs on 1 April, Ownergy has engaged in a number of solar park projects in the UK and the launch of this service consolidates the company’s offering.
The full scope of Ownergy’s service, where required, includes the planning, procurement and management of a solar park. This begins with the feasibility and design of the project, including assistance through the process of attaining planning permission.
Ownergy will then carry out the procurement of equipment and the appointment and management of all delivery sub-contractors. Finally, Ownergy will maintain and manage the solar systems through the 25 year lifetime of the feed-in tariffs for solar photovoltaics (PV).
There are no solar parks live in the UK today, but the new feed-in tariff has made the development of such projects financially viable, Ownergy says.
Philip Wolfe, Managing Director of Ownergy, says: “The level of interest in solar park development in the UK since the feed-in tariffs went live has been impressive and we are currently waiting on planning permission for our first live project.
“Our experience and knowledge of both solar parks and the feed-in tariffs makes us ideally positioned to help prospective owners identify optimal site requirements and, where required, manage every aspect of the solar park’s development.”
