Welcome to the Knighton Solar PV Public Information Event
ScottishPower Renewables (UK) Limited, (SPR) is developing Knighton Solar PV, comprising of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).
Knighton Solar PV (‘the Proposed Development’) is located within an area north of Knighton, near Adbaston in Staffordshire (‘the Site’). The solar PV farm will export up to 50MW renewable electricity to the wider electricity network, and the BESS will contribute overall efficiency of the Proposed Development.
ScottishPower Renewables is part of the ScottishPower group of companies operating in the UK under the Iberdrola Group, one of the world’s largest integrated utility companies and a world leader in wind energy. ScottishPower, the first integrated energy utility in the UK to generate 100% green energy, is already investing a total of £10bn over five years - £6 million every working day, to power a greener future for everyone living and working in the UK.
ScottishPower Renewables is at the forefront of the development of the renewables industry through pioneering ideas, forward thinking and outstanding innovation. Its ambitious growth plans include expansion of its existing onshore wind portfolio, investment in new large-scale solar deployment and innovative grid storage systems including batteries.
Solar powered energy has a key role to play as part of the mix of renewable energy sources required to meet national energy targets, in particular the Government’s legally binding target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050. This solar farm has the potential to significantly contribute towards these national targets and to make a considerable difference in reducing national CO2 emissions.
