Projects Currently in Development
Lark Energy has a number of proposed solar farm projects at differing stages in the planning process throughout the UK. The following is a selection of these projects. Further information will be added to the website as it becomes available.
A solar farm which could produce enough energy to power 7,000 homes is being proposed by Lark Energy at Ellough airfield in Suffolk.
The solar farm would occupy 150 acres, producing around 25MW of clean and renewable electricity on an annual basis. This is the equivalent of powering every home in Beccles and Worlingham for an entire year.
Lark Energy held a public exhibition in Beccles in August 2012 which attracted 130 attendees. The response from the attendees was overwhelmingly positive and a planning application was submitted. This was recommended for approval by officers but was rejected by the planning committee on the casting vote of the Chairman. A smaller 14MWp project was subsequently submitted by Lark Energy and gained planning approval in April 2013. The original application has however been called in by the Secretary of State for determination at a public inquiry in June 2013. The decision is due to be announced by the end of October 2013.
