Ownergy

Other projects

Ownergy has worked on over 100 solar park proposals from Cornwall to the Scottish lowlands

Solar parks offered a unique opportunity to deploy solar photovoltaic power for larger-scale generation opportunities

Though much of the solar park activity was curtailed in its prime by the government's assault on the Feed-in Tariffs, several interesting projects were had already showed significant promise.

A few individual projects progressed to planning applications listed under the individual buttons on the left. Many more were halted at an earlier stage but not before some interesting opportunities had emerged, as illustrated below.

Airfield sites

Disused or lightly used airfields provide perfect locations, because they are quite flat and do not displace agricultural land.

Ownergy has designed systems for a number or airfields, including that at Westcott.

Area adjacent to runway where solar array can be installedDesign for a 5MW solar park on and adjoining runways

 

 

 

 

If the runways are still in use, the solar arrays can be mounted on the surrounding land; if not, runways provide an ideal mounting surface.

Other 'brown-field' sites

Similarly there are many other sites where solar parks can be sited without using agricultural land.

Solar park designed on a former industrial and landfill siteSolar park design in a quarry in DerbyshireThese examples show designs on old landfill sites and quarries.

Greenfield sites

Many greenfield sites are also suitable for solar farms.

While it is best not to use prime agricultural land, the sites do not have to be taken out of use, and can still be used for grazing, for example.
