UK’s largest solar farm commissioned

Posted on

On 12th September 2014 the 37.8 MWp Crundale Solar Farm in Pembrokeshire began to generate renewable energy. Construction of the project was completed in only eight weeks. The project is a joint development between ib vogt GmbH and Solafields Ltd. and is currently the largest operating solar farm in the UK.

The 37.8 MWp solar farm at Crundale was connected to the grid on 12th September 2014 as scheduled. It has 147,672 modules producing over 38 GWh of renewable electricity per annum, enough to power more than 11,000 UK homes and save 20,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per annum. The solar farm project has been purchased by institutional investors. It was jointly developed by Solafields and ib vogt GmbH, with vogt solar Ltd also acting as EPC.

Solafields and vogt are jointly developing a portfolio of over 100MWp in the UK.
