PACE proposes plans for UK solar power projects: The first subsidy-free solar power projects in the UK has submitted plans by Pathfinder Clean Energy (PACE).

They include two separate planning applications with a total capacity of 40MW, for ground-mounted solar farms, in Norfolk.

The solar farms – which have the capability to co-locate battery storage – are expected to reduce emissions by 10,000 tonnes yearly & generate enough electricity to power more than 12,500 homes.

Both projects – one called Burgate, located eight miles north of Norwich & the other called Three Bridges, seven miles north-east of Dereham – would be located on agricultural land.

PACE presently has a development pipeline weth over 1GW of solar projects in the UK & overseas.

The latest projects are expected to enter operation  in mid-2021 and will be subject to planning and financing, .

“Submitting our first subsidy-free projects into planning in the UK is a great achievement and we are targeting mid-2021 for both Three Bridges Solar and Burgate Solar to be constructed.

“Our 80MW Canadian projects should also achieve this milestone in 2021 and we are expecting to have additional projects ready for planning in the UK before the end of this year.” Rob Denman, Managing Director of PACE stated.
