G Parker, Westmill Solar Cooperative, 2013

Welcome to Solstice Renewables

We are a small, independent solar farm developer, motivated by our belief that renewable energy is critically important for reducing the UK’s carbon emissions and our future energy security.

Since being founded in 2013 we have developed seven solar farms totalling 75 MegaWatts (MW) capacity – enough renewable electricity to power 22,500 typical homes.

We take pride in our approach to development:

  • Taking particular care to ensure the sites we choose can be well hidden, with a minimal visual impact on the area.
  • Working closely with communities from the earliest stages of our projects, offering community benefit funds and where viable enabling the community to own a share of our projects.
  • Ensuring land in our solar farms stays in agricultural use through sheep grazing and implementing best practice when it comes to biodiversity and ecological improvements.
  • Working with local schools to help educate the next generation about renewable energy, biodiversity and climate change.

We’re delighted to have been shortlisted for two categories in the 2015 Solar Power Portal Awards, for best community benefits and best solar farm over 5 MW for Manor Farm, Verwood.
