reNEWS – Sonnedix turns sod on 300MW UK solar

Sonnedix has started construction of a 300MW portfolio of five solar projects in the UK.

The portfolio, acquired by Sonnedix in December 2022, will be completed in early 2025.

The portfolio is 100% contracted under the UK government’s Contracts for Difference (CfD) scheme, allocation rounds AR4 and AR5.

CfDs provide a guaranteed price for electricity via 15-year contracts with the Low Carbon Contracts Company.

The portfolio comprises five ground-mounted solar plants across England, including Cowley Complex (County Durham), Gonerby Solar (Lincolnshire), Winkburn Solar Farm (Nottinghamshire), Gammaton Solar (North Devon) and Lawns Solar (Lancashire).

They range in size from 120MW to 20MW and are being built by Ameresco Sunel Energy.
