PS Renewables and Ørsted, two established developers of renewable energy projects, are bringing forward proposals for One Earth Solar Farm.

One Earth is a proposed solar farm with associated battery storage and infrastructure, located primarily in Nottinghamshire, that would connect into the National Grid at High Marnham substation.

The project is still in an early stage of development. In Autumn 2023, the developers behind One Earth hosted a first round of consultation on the early proposals for the project. Feedback from the first consultation, as well as the results of ongoing environmental and technical assessments have informed the updated proposals, which are now the subject of a second round of ‘statutory’ consultation from 29 May – 9 July 2024.

Matt Hazell, Co-owner of PS Renewables said: “We are excited to launch the second consultation for One Earth Solar Farm. We appreciate everyone who took the time to provide feedback during the first consultation. We considered the feedback we received carefully and have made a number of significant changes to the project, which we will present during this second consultation.

From 29 May, we will provide a variety of opportunities to learn more about the updated proposals, including in-person events in locations across the local area and online, where individuals can meet our project team, ask questions, and provide their feedback. We encourage anyone with an interest in the proposals to meet with us during this statutory consultation and share their views on our updated proposals.”

Speaking on behalf of Ørsted, Randall Linfoot said: “This project marks an exciting milestone for Ørsted as we bring our expertise in renewable energy projects to solar energy in the UK. In line with our other projects, we want to work with local residents, community groups, and elected officials to ensure that the project is developed in a way that is sensitive to the community and environment, and that the benefits of the project are felt in the local area.”

If approved, the project would deliver 740 MW of domestically-produced renewable energy to the National Grid, which is enough to power more than 200,000 homes and make a significant contribution in the fight against climate change and support energy security. In January 2024, a new National Policy Statement for Energy was adopted, which defines large-scale solar projects like One Earth as ‘critical national priorities’ to support the goal of increasing solar development by five-fold to decarbonise the power sector by 2035. This is part of the UK’s legally-binding target to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050.

Because the project would produce more than 50 MW of energy, it is considered a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP), which means that it will require a Development Consent Order (DCO) from the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero.
