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 six solar farms totalling 70 MegaWatts (MW) capacity – enough renewable electricity to power 21,000 typical homes. We would like to double this.

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’ve joined with WWF and 80 UK businesses to call on the new government to take decisive action to combat climate change and build a low-carbon economy.
