Luminous Energy achieves financial close on first wholly-owned solar farm

Wiltshire-based renewable energy and battery storage developer Luminous Energy has achieved financial close on a Norfolk solar farm.

The 28.5 MWp Bracon Ash Solar Farm is expected to achieve first power in the summer of 2024 and generate enough electricity to power more than 9,500 households annually.

The Corsham firm’s transition into an an independent power producer coincides with the company’s tenth-anniversary celebrations.

David Bryson, COO of Luminous Energy, said: “We are delighted to continue our contribution to the fight against global climate change with the construction of Bracon Ash Solar Farm, which aligns with South Norfolk Council’s emissions reduction goals as well as the national target to achieve net zero by 2050.

“It also demonstrates our dedication to working closely with local communities. The final design, which incorporates community feedback is expected to deliver a 203 per cent net biodiversity gain.”

BELECTRIC, a leading EPC service provider with over two decades of experience in the development, construction and operation of solar power plants, has been awarded the contract to construct Bracon Ash Solar Farm.

BELECTRIC first joined forces with Luminous Energy in 2013 when the two companies signed a joint development agreement and subsequently developed a number of successful projects together.
