Lark Energy completed the construction and connection of solar farm projects with a total capacity of 91.6MWp throughout the first three months of 2015.
The developer also revealed that 60.6MWp of the connected capacity was solely developed by Lark Energy across six separate sites, while the remaining 31MWp was completed with the company’s assistance.
The projects were completed before 1 April’s renewable obligation cut-off point and Paul Adams, managing director at Lark Energy Ltd, responsible for the construction and operation of the solar farms, said he was proud the company had managed to do so before the “challenging” deadlines.
“It was a fantastic team effort involving not only our own staff but also our many partners and suppliers. Our strong relationship with the DNOs in each area was also instrumental in getting us over the line,” Adams said.
All but one of the projects were funded by Lark’s long-term finance partner Armstrong Energy, whose director Robin Chamberlayne said he expected the solar farms to begin delivering positive returns for investors.
Last week Lark Energy confirmed that its commercial arm had adopted SunEdison’s commercial power purchase performance offering, claiming that the PPA’s structure would help its commercial clients save up to 50% on their energy bills.
