The Solar Building Company (SBC) has agreed to sell the project rights for a 5.5MW solar park in the south of England to S.A.G. Solarstorm AG, a European EPC contractor and service provider.

The selling of the project rights follows SBC receiving planning permission for the 5.5MW site in St. Ive, Liskeard. The development will utilise Hanwha modules and LTi modules to harness the site’s predicted annual yield of 980kWh. 

SBC and S.A.G. Solarstorm AG are predicting that the solar park will be capable of producing 5.4 million kWh per year – enough to supply electricity for around 1,500 households and prevent the emission of around 3,600 tonnes of CO2 every year it is in operation. 

“The project represents an ideal introduction to the UK market, as the project was completely developed by The Solar Building Company and we were able to start construction without any delays,” explained Oliver Günter, Member of the Executive Board of S.A.G. Solarstrom AG.

The solar park is already under construction and the companies are confident that the project will be connected to the grid in March.

“This is planned to be the first in a number of joint developments,” added James Steynor, SBC Managing Director.
