SSE has announced details of its first solar project that will deliver 30MW of clean energy as part of its ambitious £12.5bn investment programme to power change towards net zero.

As the UK’s ‘national clean energy champion’ SSE is committed to deploying renewable energy technologies and has purchased the project development rights for its first solar project in England from the developer Stark Energy.

The 30MW solar farm at Littleton Pastures is located near Evesham in Worcestershire. Once complete in late 2023, the 77-acre site will be capable of powering some 9,400 homes.

SSE Group is investing around £7m a day on critical low-carbon infrastructure to facilitate the transition to net zero. Solar energy is regarded as a complementary technology to other sources of renewable technology such as wind power.

SSE’s distributed energy team is developing opportunities of over 1GW in solar and battery storage technology and recently announced its first 50MW battery storage project in Wiltshire.

Anthony Brindle, Managing Director of Stark Energy, said:

“SSE has a strong track record of constructing and operating renewable energy projects in the United Kingdom and we are delighted to be working with them on our Littleton project. We look forward to supporting SSE through the construction process and seeing the project through to its connection.”

SSE recently announced its 'Net Zero Acceleration Programme' to boost sustainable, clean growth, lead the energy transition and maximise value for all stakeholders. The plans include a substantially increased, fully funded £12.5bn strategic capital investment plan to 2026 as well as ambitious targets to 2031.

SSE’s distributed energy team [part of its Energy Solutions unit] aims to play a major part in the emerging flexible energy system. It develops infrastructure such as battery and solar, and also provides key services to enable users to benefit from new way
