Q ENERGY today announced that it is advancing with the construction on a 33 MWp solar PV farm (“Whinfield Solar”) near Darlington in the Northeast of England. Whinfield Solar will be equipped with nearly 60,000 ground-mounted solar modules and is expected to produce enough emission-free electricity to satisfy the average demand of more than 8,700 households. This will save around 8,000 tonnes of carbon emissions per year.

This is not Q ENERGY's first project in the UK. During the 1.3 ROC (Renewable Obligation Certificates) period, the company, at that time under the Hanwha Qcells brand, had already delivered five solar PV farms in the country. In 2022, the development and EPC business segment was split off from Hanwha Qcells and has since been combined with a leading developer and EPC provider for renewable energy in France to form today's Q ENERGY.

Mark Jones, Senior Business Developer at Q ENERGY, says: “We are delighted to announce the construction of our first solar PV farm in the UK under the Q ENERGY brand. With this project, Q ENERGY is not only making a contribution to the energy transition in the UK but will also create added value for the environment. A biodiversity net gain of 55.15% will be achieved for habitat units, and 9.72% for hedgerow units. Moreover, we are working closely with as many local suppliers as possible when constructing Whinfield Solar to create maximal local employment opportunities.”
