Statkraft, another large-scale solar developer, have announced a new solar facility for the Bramford Tye area – Greybarn Solar Farm.
Details are very limited at this point. We only know what is available on their website: Greybarn solar energy farm.
However we do have enough details to share an updated cumulative impact map, below.
Green = existing residential, agricultural, and business areas.
Yellow = existing and approved energy infrastructure.
Red = Enso Energy Solar
Orange = EDF Renewables Solar
Purple = Statkraft
Blue = proposed National Grid overhead lines. There are another two lines to be added (one from the north and one to the south) but the proposed locations are yet to be revealed by National Grid. These transmission lines are needed if the benefits of the East Anglian offshore wind energy projects are to be realised, but they’re fast running out of space.
