TLT advises on solar projects on landfill sites

TLT has advised REG Solarpower on the land agreements for three solar projects with Veolia, the UK's leading waste management company.

The sites are on restored landfill sites and have an expected combined installed capacity of approximately 60MW.

REG Solarpower is part of AIM-listed Renewable Energy Generation, which develops, constructs, finances and operates onshore renewable projects in the UK split across three main sectors; onshore wind, bio-mass and solar. REG Solarpower also has exclusive rights to assess the potential for development on a further seven Veolia sites.

TLT's head of Energy & Renewables, Maria Connolly, who led on the project said:

"The innovative use of landfill sites for solar projects was a fantastic deal to work on. As with many renewable energy projects there were complex issues that arose throughout the process. We worked closely with our client to make sure that everything was completed within time particularly in light of the changing regulatory environment."

REG Solarpower's Development Director, Matt Partridge, said:

"The TLT team provided excellent support on the solar proposals we are progressing with Veolia. Their extensive experience and attention to detail have assisted enormously."

This deal builds on the team's expertise within the solar market. To date TLT’s Energy & Renewables team has been involved in getting over 1GW of solar projects either in the pipeline, contracted or built. The team's UK capability has enabled them to share sector know how across all jurisdictions, which has been particularly the case with the proposed domestic rooftop solar roll-out and ground mounted schemes in Northern Ireland.
