Today marks a week until the close of consultation on early plans for Springwell Solar Farm, a proposed new solar farm with battery storage located between Lincoln and Sleaford that could power over 180,000 homes every year*.
The early plans for Springwell were made available for comment in January, with events in Scopwick, Ashby-de-la-Launde, Blankney and Metheringham providing opportunities for local communities to find out more and ask questions about the proposals. The consultation remains open for responses until 11:59pm on Tuesday 07 March 2023.
Springwell Solar Farm is a joint venture between EDF Renewables UK and Luminous Energy. EDF Renewables UK’s Head of Solar, Ben Fawcett said, “It has been tremendous to see so many people at our Springwell events. We’re grateful to everyone who’s taken the time to meet with us, get in touch and share their views.
“I’d encourage anyone who hasn’t provided feedback to do so before the consultation closes. Your views are vital and will play an important role in helping shape our plans.
“After the consultation, we’ll carefully consider all responses and develop our plans in more detail. We’ll ask for further views on these later in the year.”
