Solar asset manager Amberside Energy has been selected to manage a 21MW solar farm in Somerset. The Bowerhouse 2 solar farm, in north Somerset, was recently acquired by Kent County Council, which operates it through Laser Energy, part of Kent County Council’s commercial services group. Bowerhouse 2, built by Ethical Power, will contribute to about 30% of Kent County Council’s Net Zero carbon reduction target. To ensure this investment, using £14.4m from the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme, is a success from the outset, LASER Energy has appointed asset manager Amberside Energy to manage its interests at the site. Kane Stockwell, Net Zero Energy Supply Lead at Laser Energy, said: “Bowerhouse 2 solar park is a significant and important step for Kent County Council to achieve their net zero goals.
“We at Laser Energy are pleased to have Amberside Energy on board to help us deliver a robust Asset Management service and are confident that their expertise and experience in this field will ensure the site performs at a high standard.” Joe Miletic, Head of Asset and Portfolio Management at Amberside Energy, added: “We are delighted to have been selected by the Kent County Council to manage their solar farm, and we are committed to helping them achieve their goal of becoming Net Zero. “We are proud to be working alongside industry leaders Laser Energy, LWH Partnership and Ethical Power to ensure that the project not only meets all relevant standards but also reaches its full potential in the years to come. “This partnership represents an exciting opportunity for Amberside Energy to make a positive impact on the environment and support the council’s sustainability initiatives.”
