PROJECTS

Elgin Energy has delivered operational solar farms across sites in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland with an output of more than 250MW. This portfolio includes the largest operational solar farms to date in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Furthermore, we have a pipeline of 1,000MW+ of solar farms at various late stages of development.

At Elgin Energy, the long-term nature of infrastructural development requires extensive research and time in order to identify the right opportunities. The landowner is an integral part of each project. We build relationships with landowners founded on trust and respect, and work together to develop sustainable solar energy farms. Due to this approach, we only progress suitable developments and to date, Elgin Energy has a 97% success rate in our planning applications.
