Northern Ireland's largest solar farm gets the green light

TLT's Sarah Ewing, real estate associate, has advised Hadstone Energy Limited, who develop, build, operate and invest in UK solar parks, on Northern Ireland's biggest solar farm project to date.

Once completed the 46MW 79 hectare solar farm in Country Antrim will be able to supply energy to 9,500 homes.

TLT's Sarah Ewing said: "This is both a significant development for Hadstone Energy Limited and the wider renewable energy sector in Northern Ireland; showing that renewable energy is still seen as a viable commercial option despite shifting policy and regulations changes."

‎Philip Deeks, Director at Hadstone Energy Limited, said: "We face a real challenge to connect the solar farm within the next 12 months, but we are hopeful that SONI and NIE will do everything they can to make this work.  At the moment we are just very pleased to have been granted planning permission for such a great solar farm site. 

"We are indebted to the hard work of the authorities, the landowners, Ross Planning and of course to Sarah Ewing, who has been truly excellent, just as she has been on all of our projects in Northern Ireland."

This latest deal builds on TLT’s expertise within the solar market. To date the team has been involved in getting over 2GW of solar projects either in the pipeline, contracted or built across all three UK jurisdictions.
