Plans for a new solar farm with battery storage in Buckinghamshire, England, have been unveiled by EDF Renewables UK and PS Renewables. Located between Buckingham and Aylesbury, Rosefield Solar Farm is classified as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) because its generating capacity will be over 50MW. Details of early plans for the scheme will be published for consultation on Thursday 28 September 2023. The consultation will run for six weeks, with feedback from the community helping to shape the plans for Rosefield Solar Farm and identify potential benefits for the local area.
EDF Renewables UK’s Director of Solar, Storage and Private Wire, Matthew Boulton said: “At EDF Renewables UK, we’re passionate about creating a future where clean energy powers our lives. “Rosefield Solar Farm would produce much-needed low-carbon electricity here in the UK, helping to power thousands of homes and businesses every year. “We are currently at a very early stage in developing our plans for Rosefield Solar Farm and look forward to hearing the views of the local community. “Consultation is a vital part of the design process, and we encourage everyone to get in touch, meet the team and share their views.” Matt Hazell, Co-Owner & Director at PS Renewables, added: “PS Renewables has supported the UK’s transition to net zero for more than a decade. “We look forward to working with the community to deliver a scheme that provides substantial benefits for the environment and local area to enjoy for generations to come.”
