Construction of ScottishPower’s solar farm at the Carland Cross hybrid wind, PV and energy storage site has begun, with the first of the 10,000 panels installed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
ScottishPower has submitted a planning application for up to 40MW of solar, along with up to 50MW of battery storage and a 20MW electrolyser as part of its Green Hydrogen for Scotland project.
Across Scotland, 14 local organisations have received funding from SP Energy Networks (SPEN) for solar installations.
Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) tariffs have been unveiled after the legislation came into full effect yesterday (1 January 2020), with pricing ranging wildly from Social Energy's 5.6p per kWh down to the barely-compliant 0.001p per kWh that Shell Energy is offering.
ScottishPower is to retrofit its onshore wind farms with new solar and battery storage capacities as part of a major hybridisation drive.
