Solar Energy

PWA Planning’s solar energy expertise helps our clients in gaining planning permission for solar projects in the UK, one that stays in tune with the government’s agenda on renewable energy and the fast-changing technology involved.

From small and medium solar energy projects to large scale solar developments with thousands of solar arrays, our team has the solar energy planning expertise to support your aspirations.

We can work with solar energy providers as a long-term partner, guiding you through the process, helping you submit planning applications for solar energy schemes, and supporting you to develop a strong pipeline of sites with planning permission.

We also advise landowners and farmers to help you unlock value from your land assets by partnering with developers of solar farms and installations.

We can provide a detailed development appraisal for solar projects on your land that takes into account the key considerations like the capacity of the local electricity network and the proximity to a grid connection.

If your site is suitable, we can use our industry contacts, to put you together with energy providers that have the know-how, track record and financial support to bring the project to fruition.
