£18m solar PV deal announced

Following its latest acquisition of solar PV facilities, NextEnergy Solar Fund (NESF) will increase its total assets to 271.1MWp.

NESF announced the purchase of three solar farms with a combined capacity of 18MWp earlier this week, according to the BPVA.

Its acquisitions include the 8MWp Ellough Solar 2 facility, currently under construction and an extension of the main Ellough plant.

Completion is expected to take place before the end of March next year, which will see the project receive 1.3 Renewables Certificate support for large scale projects.

Further to this, NESF will also buy the Decoy and Hall Farm projects, both with 4.99MWp capacity.

These are pre-accredited Feed-in Tariff projects which are expected to be connected before the end of the year.

The fund has purchased six solar projects since raising £38.8m in September, spending a total of £40.2m and now owns 24 assets.
