Our Projects

Stark Energy is currently developing over 500MW of solar PV projects in the UK. The Projects which have been submitted into planning are shown on the map below.

Wentlooge Solar Project

Wentlooge Solar Project

  • 125Mw
  • 37,500 Houses Powered
  • In Planning

Wentlooge Solar Project is located on the Wentlooge levels in South Wales, and benefits from an on-site 132kV grid connection and some of the highest irradiation in the UK. Stark have worked closely with six local landowners to develop the project which will diversify their businesses helping to ensure the viability of farming for future generations. The project will be the largest solar PV project in Wales if planning consent is granted in late 2020. The land has been carefully selected to avoid good agricultural land, and the land will retain its agricultural function throughout the 40 year life of the project through the grazing of sheep within the site.

By-Pass Solar Project

By-Pass Solar Project

  • 50Mw
  • 15,000 Houses Powered
  • In Planning

By-Pass Solar Project is located near Grantham in the district of South Kesteven. The project will connect into a nearby 132kV overhead line, and is the result of a collaborative effort between Stark and three local landowners. The project is located on low grade agricultural land, and will retain its agricultural function through the grazing of sheep during the 40 year lifetime of the project. A planning application has been submitted for the project with a decision expected before the end of 2020.

Green Farm Solar Project

Green Farm Solar Project

  • 50Mw
  • 15,000 Houses Powered
  • In Planning

Green Farm Solar Project is located in Melton, on land owned by the Belvoir Castle Estate. The project will connect into a nearby 132kV overhead line, and has been selected for development due to the low grade agricultural land and the low visual impact on the surrounding landscape and heritage assets. The land will retain its agricultural function through the grazing of sheep during its 40 year lifetime, at which point the land will be returned to agricultural use. The project has a designated “Biodiversity Enhancement Area” which will make a positive contribution to promoting Biodiversity in the area. A planning application has been submitted for the project with a decision expected in early 2021.

Haunton Solar Project

Haunton Solar Project

  • 50Mw
  • 15,000 Houses Powered
  • In Planning

Haunton Solar Project is located in the district of Lichfield, to the north of Tamworth. The project is a collaboration between Stark Energy and four local farming families, who have welcomed the opportunity to diversify their businesses and contribute to an environmentally friendly energy project. The land will retain its agricultural function through the use of sheep grazing, and has been carefully selected to avoid best and most versatile agricultural land. The diversification of the landowner’s less productive land at each of their farms will enable them to focus their operations on farming their best land in an increasingly challenging climate. The project will connect into a nearby 132kV overhead line. A planning application has been submitted for the project with a decision expected in early 2021.

Five Lanes Solar Project

Five Lanes Solar Project

  • 44Mw
  • 13,200 Houses Powered
  • In Planning

Five Lanes Solar Project is located in Wiltshire, on land owned by the Charlton Park Estate. Stark have worked closely with the estate to identify a suitable site for the project which ensures that it has a minimal visual impact on the surrounding landscape and is located on low grade agricultural land. There are no public rights of way in close proximity to the site meaning it can operate quietly in the landscape with minimal impact on the local public amenity of the area. The project will be connected into a 132kV overhead line exporting electricity in the local distribution network. A planning application has been submitted for the project with a decision expected in early 2021.

Littleton Solar Project

Littleton Solar Project

  • 31Mw
  • 9,300 Houses Powered
  • In Planning

Littleton Solar Project is located in Wychavon, to the north east of Evesham. The project will connect into the local 66kV distribution network, and has carefully been sited to ensure the development has minimal impact on the surrounding landscape and is located on low grade agricultural land. A planning application has been submitted for the project with a decision expected by the end of 2020.

Docking Farm Solar Project

Docking Farm Solar Project

  • 28Mw
  • 8,400 Houses Powered
  • In Planning

Docking Farm Solar Project is located in Norfolk in the Broadlands district. The project benefits from an on-site 33kV connection into the local distribution network and has been carefully sited to avoid the loss of best and most versatile agricultural land, and to minimise the impact on the surrounding landscape. The project’s lifecycle of 40 years will enable the land to recover from decades of intensive farming and maximise its future productivity once returned to agricultural use. The site benefits from existing screening in the form of mature and established hedgerows. A planning application has been submitted for the project with a decision expected by the end of 2020.

Brynwell Farm Solar Project

Brynwell Farm Solar Project

  • 21Mw
  • 6,300 Houses Powered
  • Pre-Planning

Brynwell Farm Solar Project is located in the Vale of Glamorgan to the west of Cardiff. The project will be connected into the local 33kV distribution network. The land has been selected to minimise the impact on the surrounding landscape, and is sited on grade five agricultural land which is currently used for livestock grazing. The agricultural use of the land will continue through the grazing of sheep, but with the added benefit of the land producing green electricity for local consumption. Stark are in the early stages of the DNS planning process with the Welsh Planning Inspectorate.

North Farm Solar Project

North Farm Solar Project

  • 20Mw
  • 6,000 Houses Powered
  • In Planning

North Farm Solar Project is located in North Dorset, to the south of Blandford Forum. The project benefits from a nearby 33kV connection point, and very high irradiation for the UK. The land is currently used as a pig farm, and has been selected to avoid using best and most versatile land, whilst minimising the impact on the surrounding character of the landscape. The project will be an extension to an existing solar development located in neighbouring fields at the farm. The project is expected to receive planning consent by the end of 2020
