A Somerset client has completed the freehold sale of circa 2 acres for a 30MW battery storage site. We provided strategic and tactical grid rights advice.
There are opportunities for landowners to earn diversification incomes from power generation and energy storage schemes. We give some tips to ensure you secure the best ground rents from hosting such schemes.
