The pipeline of large-scale solar farms in the UK has now reached 3.9GW, comprised of 340 sites, according to the latest release of the UK Large-Scale Solar Farms: The Post-Subsidy Prospect List report. While we continue to log new screening applications, full planning applications, and plans for unused capacity from previous partially-completed ROC sites (mostly as downsized 1.2 RO schemes), the most significant update during the past month has been our inclusion of a 300MW solar farm in the south of England. This single site accounts for most of the new capacity added in the past month, compared to the 3.55GW of capacity included in the previous monthly report release. I will be delivering a presentation on the post-subsidy pipeline next week at the Solar Business Conference of the Solar & Storage Live event at the NEC in Birmingham (3-5 October 2017). However, for many reading this article right now, the burning topic will relate to our breaking news here of plans for a 300MW solar farm in the UK.
