Solar Power Portal takes a look at how current grid connection timeframes are lengthening for UK solar, while new dynamics emerge with landowners.
Despite a surge in activity, grid connections remain a key barrier to the development of solar projects in the Republic of Ireland.
Solar Power Portal caught up with Solar Electric’s Sales and Marketing director Robert Goss to discuss how the market is changing, helped by stronger renewable commitments that are going to help “take the lid off” C&I solar.
Solar Power Portal caught up with Matt Pryor, technical manager of Overhead Lines at Freedom and Craig Gilroy, head of Connections for SSEN, to discuss how the technology was developed, connecting the Bradenstoke solar farm and what POC-MAST could mean for grid connections going forwards.
The first solar site has been connected to the grid using Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) Distribution’s Point of Connection Mast (POC-MAST).
