Downing Shines Bright: Planning Green Light for 50MW Solar Farm in Norfolk! 

Downing Renewable Developments is lighting up the path to a greener future with its latest triumph – the Meerdyke Solar Farm in Norfolk! With planning consent secured, this 50MW solar farm is set to make a monumental impact as part of Downing’s impressive 6GW development pipeline across the UK. 🇬🇧

But it’s not just about clean energy – it’s about nurturing nature too! Covering 54 hectares, Meerdyke will blossom into a haven for biodiversity, boasting a remarkable 176% biodiversity net gain. 

What sets Downing apart? It’s their commitment to community and compassion. Beyond generating renewable energy, they’re dedicated to uplifting local residents by offering free domestic solar installations each year, prioritizing those in need. 

Tom Williams, Partner and head of energy and infrastructure at Downing, expresses his excitement: “Downing Renewable Developments is an important part of our business, and we are delighted with their latest success.” 

Tony Gannon, Head of Downing Renewable Developments, shares his enthusiasm: “Receiving this planning consent is a major milestone for us, but more importantly, this project will contribute to reaching UK net zero targets and offer significant benefits to the local area.” 

With over 25 sites in the pipeline and a commitment to invest over £4 billion in the next decade, Downing is not just envisioning change – they’re making it happen. Join them on their journey to a brighter, more sustainable tomorrow! #DowningRenewable #SolarPower #Biodiversity #GreenEnergy #CommunityImpact #NetZeroUK
