South Fambridge Hall Solar Farm

Project info

South Fambridge Hall Solar Park Limited is building a 52 MWp solar farm, which will produce enough  electricity to power approximately 15,000 households per year* with green energy. Solar farms are essential to achieve the UK's goal of net-zero carbon by 2050 and ensure homes and businesses can be supplied with clean, renewable and domestically generated energy.


The site is located approximately 3 km northeast of the town of Hockley in Essex. It will connect to the grid via an existing overhead line approximately 100 m to the southwest of the site entrance.
