Green energy company launches consultation for solar farm on A46 near Lincoln

Today Fosse Green Energy has launched a public consultation on its plans for a green energy park south of Hykeham near Lincoln.

The consultation will remain open until early October, and is seeking views on the plans for a solar panel and battery storage facility capable of supporting 110,000 households.

Fosse Green Energy is a JV company set up between Windel Energy and Recurrent Energy, and is planning the facility on land about five miles south-west of Lincoln in North Kesteven. It spans the A46 Fosse Way.

It will be made up of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery energy storage areas. The solar park will be connected by underground cable to the grid via a substation, which National Grid is in the process of exploring locations for.  The company is currently considering two options for the grid connection corridor, one of which will be selected as part of a Development Consent Order application which will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for examination.
