We are emailing to announce the launch of our first stage of public consultation for Fosse Green Energy, a new solar and energy storage park which is anticipated to provide clean electricity for approximately 110,000 households. The consultation is open from 11 September to 20 October 2023. If your parish would appreciate a briefing please do get in touch using the contact details below.
The project is proposed to be located on land nine kilometres (5.6 miles) south-west of Lincoln in North Kesteven and is located to the north and south of the A46, commonly known as Fosse Way. It will be made up of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery energy storage areas. The solar park will be connected by underground cable to the grid via a substation, which National Grid is in the process of exploring locations for. We are currently considering two options for the grid connection corridor, one of which will be selected as part of a Development Consent Order (DCO) application which will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for examination.
The project is being brought forward by Fosse Green Energy, a joint venture by Windel Energy and Recurrent Energy. As the developers for the project we are committed to engaging with you and local people throughout the development process.

We would really welcome feedback on our plans from your parish and the local community, as this will help us shape the project and prioritise any changes that we make to our proposals.
