Lark Energy, which has developed and installed 60MW of solar energy in the UK since 2011 – including Britain’s largest solar farm at Wymeswold in Leicestershire (33MW) – has secured planning permission for a further 100MW across five new sites.
Lark Energy, part of the Larkfleet group of companies, said it hoped to be the lead engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company for the majority of the new sites, which include a 35MW plant in Broxted, Suffolk. It will also provide ongoing operations and maintenance (O&M) services.
Paul Adams, director of Lark Energy, said: “These projects mark the latest stage in Lark Energy’s ambition to become a leading EPC and O&M provider. We are developing very successful partnerships with a number of funders who both buy the ready-to-build projects from us and also engage in Lark Energy’s services as a high quality and fully bankable EPC for large-scale solar in the UK.”
