Press release: Landowners who are considering generating or storing energy should act fast before grid capacity runs out. The electrical grid is heavily constrained with some areas having only pockets of capacity remaining. So even where a site has good planning and access attributes, it may not be able to get a grid connection which stops a project in its tracks.
Press release: Landowners must secure grid connection rights quickly and independently to safeguard income
The rental income from hosting a large-scale energy scheme can be extremely beneficial for any landowner or farmer with a suitable site. Getting permission to connect to the electrical grid is the most important factor in determining the success and income from any scheme and is one which landowners must approach with caution.
