Lightsource BP Unveils Plans For Solar Near Fowlis

Lightsource BP, a leading global developer of solar installations, will be outlining their proposal to fund, develop and operate a 49.9MW solar farm on land off Berryhill Road, Invergowrie, Dundee, DD2 5LL, at a community information event on Monday February 18th 2019. Lightsource BP is inviting residents from the surrounding area to attend the community information event, where further information will be made available on the preliminary plans for the project.

The community information event will be held at Fowlis Easter Hall, 2 Benvie Road, Fowlis, Dundee, DD2 5SA, and residents are invited to drop in at any time between 3.30pm and 6.30pm to discuss, and offer feedback on, the provisional outlines of the planning proposal with members of the Lightsource BP team.

The proposed subsidy-free solar installation would generate around 48,250 Megawatt-Hours (MWh) of clean and renewable energy annually that would power 14,621 homes, saving 18,405 tonnes of carbon emissions, the equivalent of taking 3,916 large family cars off the roads.

As well as generating clean energy, all Lightsource BP solar installations are designed so that they also act as a haven for local wildlife. A bespoke Biodiversity Management Plan will be developed in conjunction with the planning application to ensure that the plan enhances the site as much as possible for local wildlife, and that native species benefit from planting, seeding and habitat creation. Lightsource BP is also eager to hear from wildlife enthusiasts and local schools who may be interested in playing a role in the ongoing monitoring of wildlife on the site.

The fields which are proposed to house this project have been chosen because they are well-screened by surrounding hedgerows and trees, so the surrounding area will have a limited view of the solar installation.

The plans for this solar installation are currently in their exploratory phases, and as such Lightsource BP are seeking input from the local communities and various experts to better inform and shape the final proposal.

Conor McGuigan, Director of Business Development for Europe, Lightsource BP said:

“We want to ensure that local communities in and around Fowlis are informed of our plans to develop the project, and so, we look forward to meeting elected representatives, local businesses and residents at the community information event. In addition to gaining feedback, we also want to provide a forum to give residents the opportunity to ask any questions they may have about the project or solar energy in general.”
