Through this contract, 49.99MW of renewable power will be provided to NatWest from Porth Wen Solar Farm located in Anglesey, North Wales, with power balancing and shaping services provided by EDF Business Solutions.
Construction is already underway and will be completed in 2023. EDF Renewables UK is proud that over 60% of the workforce during the enabling and civils works have been local (based less than 1 hour from the project) and once complete, the 190 acres site will be able to be used for sheep grazing.
The team will also enhance biodiversity on site with a mile long wildlife corridor, hedgerow, wildflower and woodland planting.
CEO of EDF Renewables UK, Matthieu Hue said: “We are delighted to be working with NatWest. This project demonstrates our ability to develop solar in the UK through innovative routes to market, to provide solutions for our customers in terms of low cost renewable energy whilst helping to de-carbonise the UK electricity system.”
James Close, Director of Climate Change at NatWest Group, said: “We are pleased to be working with EDF Renewables UK to deliver the Porth Wen Solar Farm. When it is completed later this year, it will supply the grid with renewable electricity equivalent to the usage of 9,500 average UK homes".
