CLEAN energy firm Enviromena is set to finalise and power up a pair of solar farms early in 2024, with one in Somerset.

The solar projects at Horsey Levels in Bridgwater and Kiln Fields in Heckfield, Hampshire, are due to provide combined renewable power of 42MWp, roughly the yearly consumption of 16,450 typical homes.

Existing plans reveal that upon completion, Horsey Levels will consist of 45,198 bifacial solar panels with a total capacity of 24.18MWp.

This power production will save the environment from 6,500 tonnes of carbon emissions, representing annually over 28,000MWhs of clean electricity.

Similarly, Kiln Fields, once fully operational, will harness sun power from 33,102 bifacial solar modules and generate over 19,000 MWhs of renewable energy per annum, offsetting close to 4,500 tonnes of carbon emissions.

Enviromena's chief operating officer Gary Hales confirmed that both projects were moving forward.

He said: "Our in house project management teams are pushing forward at speed with the construction of both projects which are on schedule to complete in line with project programmes.

"Furthermore, our grid team are working closely with our ICP partner to ensure all connection related activities are finalised ready for energisation in early 2024."

In addition, CEO Chris Marsh highlighted the strategic role these initiatives are playing in the firm’s UK growth.

He said: "The construction progress made on the projects in Heckfield and Bridgwater are further evidence on Enviromena’s growing presence in the UK solar industry.

"These two high yielding schemes form part of a portfolio that will deliver a considerable contribution to the UK’s transition to Net Zero targets and we are looking forward to energising both projects alongside commencing construction on a further 150MW of projects in early 2024."

Enviromena, one of the UK's largest clean energy firms, has over 2GW of active solar and energy storage developments across Europe.

Following a substantial equity raise of £65 million just last month, the company aims to enlarge its operational UK solar expertise to exceed 500MW by 2025.
