Support plans to deliver clean, affordable energy, locally

We have submitted proposals for a 20MW solar farm, with battery storage, that would generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 7,900 homes.

By producing solar energy domestically, the UK can combat climate change, while becoming less reliant on expensive foreign gas imports for electricity and heating. 

If you want the council to support the climate agenda, and approve these plans, you need to make your voice heard by Rushcliffe Borough council. You can do this by completing the form below.

Benefits of Heron Solar Farm

Heron Solar Farm is discreetly sized and positioned, over a mile from both Cotgrave and Radcliffe-on-Trent, and with good natural screening.

Heron Solar Farm will deliver enough clean domestic energy to meet the equivalent annual needs of over 7,900 UK homes – enough to power every home in Cotgrave, and more.

Energy generated by Heron solar Farm will save over 18,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually from equivalent fossil fuel energy – equating to taking 9,738 cars off the road each year.

JBM Solar is contributing £264,000 community benefit fund to Cotgrave Town Council, to support local organisations and initiatives.

95% of the site can continue to be used for grazing and will remain in agricultural use, allowing topsoil to recover, by increasing soil organic matter and improving soil structure.

A >50% biodiversity net gain providing ecological benefits through new habitats, such as wildflower meadows, grassland areas, habitats for birds, bats, insects, and reptiles.

Over £2.5 million generated in business rates over the lifetime of the project, to be used by Rushcliffe Borough Council to fund important local services.
