Welcome to Sutton Bridge Solar Farm

EDF Renewables is proposing to install a solar farm next to the Sutton Bridge Power Station, Spalding, PE12 9TF.  We are consulting the community on these proposals before submitting a planning application to South Holland District Council.

Our initial feasibility assessments undertaken to date indicate the site is well suited for a solar farm. The site will connect into National Grid’s Walpole substation, and will have an output power capacity of 49.9 MW (Megawatts), generating enough low carbon energy to power the equivalent of 9,581 homes [1].

Under normal circumstances we would host public information events on the project in the local community, but we’ve decided not to do that at this time because of the possible risk to public health.

Instead, we are conducting community engagement online, through the post, over the telephone, and through virtual meetings.

You’ll find lots of information on the virtual exhibition and we invite you to:

  • Read the information panels
  • Complete the online feedback form
  • Read the information leaflet we sent to residents living close by
  • Contact us for more information on 01775 662965 or at sutton.bridge.solar@edf-re.uk
