Anglo Renewables has recently received planning consent for its first solar project working with a partner.
The project, in Essex, is a 22.5MW scheme which will help Essex County Council achieve (and in some cases exceed) its targets set out in the Essex Climate Action Commission's Net Zero: Making Essex Carbon Neutral report. These targets set out the ambition of installing 1.43GW of large-scale solar panels by 2030 and producing enough renewable energy within the county to meet its own needs by 2040.
James Stone, Managing Director of Anglo Renewables, said "It is great news for us to get our first planning consent which has been the result of 2 years' hard work. The scheme will deliver lots of benefits with solar energy being one of the cleanest, lowest cost forms of energy available, and the solar farm includes proposals to greatly enhance the biodiversity of the area, creating new habitats for wildlife".
