The Proposed Development will consist of a Solar PV Farm, a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), a substation and associated equipment, a new access junction, and a new network of internal single tracks.
Solar PV Farm
The solar PV farm will comprise arrays of solar panels, each with heights of up to 3.5m at the highest point. The solar PV farm will include inverter stations, site tracks, perimeter fencing and CCTV cameras. Temporary construction compounds will be built near the site accesses, which will be dismantled and replaced by solar arrays towards the end of construction.
The area chosen for the solar PV farm will allow the solar PV arrays to be arranged in such a way that they are integrated into the landscape while still facing the sun at an optimal angle, providing maximum solar yield and requiring minimal changes to the existing topography of the site.

Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)
The BESS will consist of multiple individual containers arranged close together, next to the proposed substation location. Like the solar PV farm, the BESS compound will include associated infrastructure such as inverters, fencing, CCTV, etc.
