ET Solar announces that ET Solutions AG has completed the construction of a 9.1MW ground-mounted solar farm project in partnership with Hilperton PV.
Code named "Marsh Farm", the project is located at Trowbridge in Wiltshire and is expected to be grid-connected under the 1.4 Renewable Obligation Certificates scheme this month. Over its lifetime, the project will address the electricity requirement of approximately 3,000 households and significantly reduce carbon footprint in the region. ET Solar acts as a sole EPC provider for this project.
"In collaboration with Hilperton PV, our trusted partner, Marsh Farm will consolidate our market leadership and strengthen our track record in providing solutions to develop and build up utility-scale solar power plants on a global basis and specifically in the UK," said Dennis She, President and CEO of ET Solar.
"Marsh Farm marks a new milestone in the development of a sustainable solar energy portfolio for the UK, one of the top solar markets in the world," noted Sam Gaiger, director of Hilperton PV. "The local community will benefit enormously from ET Solar's high quality solar modules and industry-leading EPC services."
Commenting on the new solar park, senior manager and head of Lloyds Bank's South West Manufacturing team, Richard Davis, said: "This is an exciting time for both Hilperton PV and ET Solar as the lengthy and complex process of constructing Marsh Farm marks a major expansion for both firms in a fast-growing industry. Hilperton's significant investment in the new solar park reflects its business commitment to improving energy efficiency for residents in the local area, and the funding support from our specialist manufacturing team should ensure that development of the project gets off to the best possible start."
