AZO Cleantech – Ameresco, Sunel, and Sonnedix Begin Construction on 300 MW of Solar Parks Across the UK

Ameresco, Inc., a leading cleantech integrator specializing in energy efficiency and renewable energy, and Sunel Group, an international developer and EPC contractor for energy projects, in collaboration with Sonnedix, a global renewable energy producer, today began construction of a portfolio of multiple solar PV parks across the UK.

The new solar PV portfolio consists of five ground-mounted solar PV parks throughout England that will generate approximately 300,000 MWh of renewable electricity per year. The parks include Cowley Complex (120MW); Gonerby Solar (59 MW); Winkburn Solar Farm (50.5 MW); Gammaton Solar Farm (30 MW); and Lawns Solar Farm (23.5 MW). Once construction is completed, the combined solar parks will produce enough clean energy to power 85,000 UK homes and avoid 58,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually.

“We are thrilled to partner and collaborate with Sunel and Sonnedix to deliver positive clean energy results that will benefit so many individuals across the UK,” said Britta MacIntosh, Ameresco’s Executive Vice President and General Manager, West/Europe. “Solar energy solutions are a critical part of the clean energy transition, and we are so happy to work with partners who feel just as passionately about tackling decarbonisation goals.”
