What Happens Next

The Next Step

If you have suitable land and would like to know more about the advantages of solar energy please get in touch by telephone or by email.

Alternatively send us a plan of your land with a OS reference or postcode. Can you also please mark on the plan the existing electricity grid line? 

We will then respond to you within a week. If your site is suitable, we would aim to visit you within a couple of weeks to conduct a site survey. Once this has been completed and if both parties are in agreement we would like to tie up legalities within 3 or 4 weeks of the visit.

All discussions are held in strict confidence.

Legalities

If after a site visit the land appears to be suitable and both parties are in agreement, outlined below is a typical example of how we may move forward.

Exclusivity agreement

We would like to enter into an exclusivity agreement with you for an initial period of 24 months in order for us to explore the wind farm potential on your land. The only obligation on you would be not to negotiate with anyone else with regard to your land during the exclusivity period: there would be no obligation on you to continue dealing with us following the expiry of the exclusivity agreement.

Option

Should our research during the initial 24 month period indicate that it is feasible for a solar farm development to take place on your land we would then be looking at entering into an option agreement with you in order that we can take this project further with planning applications.

Lease

If planning permission is obtained, you would be obliged under the option agreement to grant us a lease for 25 years in respect of the parcels of land. You would also be obliged to grant access over the areas designated and for roads and services to be constructed and to allow access to these areas. The rental terms of the lease will be set by reference to the capacity of consented solar panels.
