Welcome to Tye Lane Solar Farm

EDF Renewables is proposing to install a solar farm at Tye Lane near Bramford. Between 16th October and 27th November 2020 we consulted the community on these proposals. We plan to submit a planning application to Mid Suffolk District Council shortly.

Our initial feasibility assessments indicate the site is well suited for a solar farm. The site will connect into National Grid’s Bramford substation and will have an output power capacity of 49.9 MW (Megawatts), generating enough low carbon energy to power the equivalent of 9,6901 homes.

The overall site area is 82 hectares of which 65 hectares is considered developable.

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 27 November 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 tye.lane@edf-re.uk.

On 4 and 11 November 2020 we held live online public consultation events where residents met members of the EDF R team, heard about the project, and asked questions.
