The Project

Low Carbon is bringing forward a new renewable energy project along with the infrastructure needed to export the electricity it generates to the local network operator, Scottish & Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN).

Barnfield Solar Farm, located on land east of Wilmingham Road in the parish of Yarmouth Town, will generate approximately 28 megawatts (MW), producing enough clean renewable energy to cover the annual electrical consumption of approximately 9,300 homes each year.

The solar farm will contribute to supporting our transition to a low carbon energy system while securing the energy needs for Great Britain whilst helping to reach our commitment of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Barnfield Solar Farm is proposed for a period of 40 years, after which the modules would be decommissioned and removed from the land and as many items will be recycled or re-purposed as possible.
