About us

Springwell Solar Farm is backed by EDF Renewables UK and Luminous Energy – two companies with a long history in helping meet the country’s need for renewable energy.

EDF Renewables UK ( is a subsidiary of EDF Group’s, one of the world’s largest low carbon electricity companies, and our investment and innovation is reducing costs for consumers and bringing significant benefits for communities.

With our operating portfolio of 38 renewable energy sites including solar, battery, onshore and offshore wind (together totalling more than 1 GW) we are providing much needed affordable, low carbon electricity. We have an expanding portfolio with almost 5 GW of projects in planning and development, including wind, battery and solar PV.

We invest in our projects and the communities where we operate for the long-term. We remain involved in projects over their lifetime from development, construction and operation, all the way through to decommissioning.

We’re pleased to be working with Luminous Energy, an established UK-based renewable energy developer with projects in the UK, US, Chile and Australia. The company was set up in 2013 to provide people around the world with affordable, renewable energy.  Luminous Energy is now regarded as a leading player in the market having delivered 1GW of projects globally and the company’s core values remain firmly at the heart of the business. 

 It aims to make a positive contribution to the world by providing practical answers to climate change, and actively seeks to implement initiatives that enhance biodiversity on individual projects which are in keeping with local communities and landscapes.
