g2 Energy completed work on 47 large scale ground mounted solar farms in the six months leading up to the early closure of the Renewables Obligation on 31 March, totalling 356.4MW.

The grid connection provider finished 66 renewable energy projects during the final quarter of 2015 and first quarter of 2016. The majority of these were solar projects in need of completion ahead of the removal of existing tariffs for all new projects connected from 1 April onwards.

The company says 2016 is the fifth year running that it has been able to connect 100% of its contracted renewable energy projects within the desired timescale for clients.

g2 Energy carried out various duties across these renewable projects, including the installation of over 3,459km of high voltage cable for the 47 solar farms.

The company has also built out 44 containerised substations since November 2015 for both its clients and distribution network operators. These units were built at g2’s warehouse facility in Milton Keynes before being transported to various sites around the UK, reportedly saving time on each project.

The arrival of the RO deadline marks the end of a hugely busy period for g2 Energy in 2015, which saw the company complete its 200th renewable energy project.

Since 2011, g2 Energy has completed works on connections for 136 solar farms, with a total export capacity of 1.2GW.

In addition to the high number of developers that needed their projects connected by the end of March, g2 Energy says it will remain busy throughout the coming months as its works to connect a high number of sites under grandfather rights.
