Sheepwash Solar Energy Farm at Little Cheveney Farm

United Kingdom / Solar power / Project

Statkraft is preparing to submit a planning application to Maidstone Borough Council for a solar energy farm which will comprise solar arrays and battery energy storage on land at Little Cheveney Farm, between Claygate and Marden.

The site has been carefully chosen for its potential to deliver renewable electricity to the grid, helping meet national and local renewable energy targets.

The solar energy farm would have an approximate design capacity of 50MW and 10MW of energy storage. The anticipated carbon displacement is approximately 20,000 tonnes per year, the equivalent to removing 7,000 cars from the road each year.

We're in the process of considering all the feedback received over the consultation period and are preparing a planning application for the Sheepwash Solar Energy Farm to be submitted to Maidstone Borough Council in Autumn 2021.
