Lackford Estate Solar Farm

Built over 96 acres of well screened, flat, grade 4 agricultural land, Lackford Solar produces 20.9 MW of clean energy, which is enough to power 6100 homes and saving more than 8900 tonnes of carbon equivalent per year. The park was the winner of the 2014 Solar Power Portal Award for best utility scale solar farm.


The site was first connected to the grid at the end of March 2014, having been constructed in under 3 months in very wet, muddy conditions.
