    SSE buys rights to three solar sites in UK

    January 31, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      January 31 (Renewables Now) - UK energy company SSE PLC’s (LON:SSE) Solar and Battery unit has bought the rights to three solar sites in the county of Nottinghamshire, East Midlands, which are currently going through a formal planning application process.

      The selling party is local solar developer Gridmove Ltd. The financial details of the transaction were kept under wraps.

      The sites, which have grid connections, are located in the Newark and Sherwood district at Foxholes, Knapthorpe and Muskham. SSE is currently also developing a battery storage site in the local area near Staythorpe for which the company plans to soon file a planning application.

      SSE’s Solar and Battery business is developing utility scale assets across the UK and Ireland.

      The British utility further in the statement reiterated that it expects to be generating power from its first battery storage site at Salisbury later in 2023. Finnish technology group Wartsila already agreed to supply a 50-MW/100-MWh energy storage system to the project.

      SSE also noted that this year it is set to kick off construction works at its first 30-MW solar site at Littleton.
