12MW Solar Farm Powers Up In Buckinghamshire

News

Bumpers solar farm

A 12MW solar farm in Buckinghamshire that will generate enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of 2,800 homes and save 5000 tonnes of carbon every year, has officially been energised.

The site, named Bumpers, was sourced, designed and fully developed by Anesco and becomes the 103rd grid-scale solar PV site to be completed by the team to date.

Located next to the Ilmer Grid substation, the solar farm has plans for co-located battery storage in the near future. The site also benefits from enhanced biodiversity measures that are designed to support local ecology, including at-risk bird and bat species.

The solar farm has been purchased from Anesco by Gresham House for one of its New Energy funds and represents the sixth Anesco solar farm and the first subsidy-free Anesco installation acquired by Gresham House.

The site will be monitored and maintained by Anesco's operations and maintenance team for the next 25 years, to ensure it continues to operate at its optimal efficiency.

Mark Futyan, Anesco CEO, commented: “Solar and battery storage have a vital role to play in the decarbonisation of the energy system and the UK's transition to net zero. We are delighted to hold long-standing relationships with investors such as Gresham House, who are committed to actively supporting this transition.”

Established in Reading in 2010, Anesco is a UK market leader in renewable energy and energy efficiency. The company has developed more than 100 solar farms to date, and its operation and maintenance arm has 1GW of renewable energy under management.
