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 consulted with 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 9,58111 homes [1].

Under normal circumstances we would have hosted public information events on the project in the local community, but we decided not to do that because of the possible risk to public health.

The consultation closed on 24 August 2020, however should residents wish to speak to us or write to us about the proposals please feel free to get in touch by emailing sutton.bridge.solar@edf-re.uk.
