NextEnergy Capital Two New Assets Totalling 115MWp


NextEnergy Capital Group, the specialist solar investment manager has announced the successful energisation of two recently constructed subsidy-free solar farms in the UK (Llanwern & Strensham) with a combined installed capacity of 115MWp. Enough clean energy to power an estimated 31,477 homes each year.

Llanwern, located in Newport, Wales, has an installed capacity of 75MWp, making it the largest solar farm constructed and energised in the UK. The solar farm, a Development of National Significance, and approved by the Welsh Assembly in 2018 - was constructed during the Covid-19 pandemic and employed over 200 workers on site at peak construction. The asset is situated within the Gwent Levels, an area with special ecological considerations supporting unique ecology. A one-of-a-kind ecological management plan sits behind the asset - agreed in partnership with Natural Resources Wales (NRW), Royal Society for the Protection of Bird (RSPB) and other stakeholders including Newport Council - which will restore the landscape for the specific benefit of rare birds, small mammals and invertebrates; many of which are unique to this area.

Strensham, the second solar farm, located in Worcestershire, England, has an installed capacity of 40Wp and was built in an impressive 7-month timeframe, employing up to 150 workers at the peak of construction.
