Innova Energy has acquired a 5MW solar plant in Wakefield, supplying the largest soft drink bottling facility in Europe, operated by Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP).
The Haigh Hall solar farm was commissioned in 2017 and covers approximately 20 acres.
Innova has agreed to work with CCEP to increase the capacity of the solar plant to 8MW by the end of the year, using the latest available technology.
This acquisition brings the total installed capacity owned and by operated by Innova Energy to 60MW.
“The acquisition of Haigh Hall solar farm demonstrates our ambition to expand our portfolio and to secure opportunities to work with blue-chip corporates as the market for corporate PPA evolves,” said Andrew Kaye, co-founder and Director of Innova Energy.
