The three five-MW systems are located in Langform, Churchtown and Manor. A total of 22,000 crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules were used on fixed arrays. The project took 10 weeks to complete.
Isolux carried out the engineering, procurement and construction of the systems, in addition to delivering the modules. Development and investment was said to have been arranged by Banco Santander and an unnamed local partner.
The Spanish company says it is the first photovoltaic project it has completed in the U.K. In a statement, it adds, "The link-up with the Western Power Distribution electricity grid was established before the latest change in regulations this summer, which reduced photovoltaic feed-in tariffs in the U.K."
