Proposed solar installations at Streetfields and Northfield House Farms

The proposal involves Lightsource bp funding the development of two solar installations near Lutterworth, that will connect into the local electricity network, and will have a combined output power capacity of 50MW (megawatts).

These two sites were selected via a rigorous initial assessment process, and we then undertook a wide range of environmental assessments to help shape our plans. These included landscape and visual, heritage and archaeology, ecology and more. We also consulted the local communities around both sites in order to gather their feedback and opinions on our proposal, and we used the information we gathered from those engagement activities to further shape the eventual site design that went to the council.

The renewable solar electricity produced at the Streetfields and Northfield House plants will supply H&M Group business activities across the UK. The solar projects became operational in December 2022, and ownership was transferred to a fund managed by Schroders Greencoat. As part of the agreement, Lightsource bp will provide third-party solar asset operation and maintenance services through the company’s highly experienced Operations and Maintenance division.

Our proposal

Our initial plans are outlined below. These plans will be informed by the results of our environmental and planning assessments which are currently underway. If you have any thoughts on our current plans, we would like to hear from you.
