Spanish company expands its solar farm presence in UK

OPDE, a Spanish developer of solar PV plants, recently gained approval for a new 18MWp solar farm in Iwade, Kent.

It will generate enough electricity to power up to 5,400 homes in the UK; the planning consent obtained enables the firm to commence construction in November 2014.

In September, OPDE obtained permission to develop a 10.8MW solar farm in Crewkerne, Somerset.

The two projects form part of OPDE’s development pipeline in the UK of more than 200MW.

With the new solar farm and other operating solar facilities, it is on track to meet its objective of connecting 100MW in photovoltaic capacity in the UK by March 2015. It already has over 56.6MW in solar farms in the country.
