TGC Renewables secures planning permission for 3.47MW solar PV project in Cornwall

Independent renewable energy project developer, TGC Renewables, has successfully secured planning permission for a 3.47MW solar project near Hayle, Cornwall.

Independent renewable energy project developer, TGC Renewables, has successfully secured planning permission for a 3.47MW solar project near Hayle, Cornwall. The project will provide the farmer landowner with a guaranteed rental income for the next 25 years and deliver enough energy to the local grid to power 796 homes.

The project, located approximately 1.6km southeast of Hayle, will be constructed on 6.2 hectares of class 3b agricultural grazing land. The ground-mounted design will utilise 198 racking tables which will hold mounted solar panels made up of approximately 12,000 solar modules. The design also allows for the land to be mixed-use so that the farmer has the option to graze sheep on the site while the solar project is live.

TGC Renewables in-house staff undertook a range of activities to obtain approval for the project including rigorous feasibility and liaison with the local planning authority, parish and members of the community.

Roy Amner, Director at TGC Renewables said “We are delighted that after detailed consultation all interested parties, our planning team secured the full support of the Strategic Planning Committee for this development.”
