Lightsource bp supports renewable asset growth for Sonnedix
London, UK, 1 December 2022 – Lightsource bp, a global leader in the development and management of solar energy projects, today announced the sale of five utility scale solar photovoltaic (PV) projects to international Renewable Energy Producer Sonnedix. This acquisition amounts to a 300MW solar portfolio, which aims to be operational in 2024 and supports Sonnedix’s ambition to scale up in the UK.
The projects which are located across different regions are expected to produce approximately 300GWh of clean energy during the first year of operation. This is equivalent to approximately 84,500 households powered, avoiding the emissions of over 57,000 metric tons of CO2 per year.

One of our key strengths at Lightsource bp is as an enabler of the energy transition by deploying our solar development experience and capability to support growing portfolios of renewables across the world.
“The sale of these assets to Sonnedix demonstrates our strong credentials as a trusted development partner, and transactions like this will catalyse the rapid deployment of renewables as businesses work in partnership to create a more sustainable energy future.”
