Posted April 16, 2019 12:06:50 Devon Energy has launched its first commercial solar project in the UK.
The company has bought the land on which the new solar panel will be built on in Bexleyheath, in south-west England, from the British Renewable Energy Agency.
Devon Energy is the world’s third largest energy company after BP and Shell.
It is one of the world´s biggest renewable energy providers.
The solar farm will be located on land formerly used for the company’s current storage and distribution system, and is expected to generate around 100kW of electricity a year.
The power will be sold to the grid and the money will go back into the company.
This is the second solar farm installed in the country in two months.
In February, Devon Energy installed a solar array on a roof at a property in London.
The site will be used for further construction of the plant, and a third solar farm is also planned for Devon in the Midlands.
The new solar farm was built by a company called Moovel, which has worked with Devon Energy before.
The company is owned by Moovelli Partners, which is part-owned by Devon Energy.
The firm has built solar arrays in the past and will also be involved in the construction of two more solar farms in Devon, which will use a combination of solar and wind energy.
The energy will be distributed via wind turbines, and from those the energy will feed into the power grid.
There are currently four solar farms built in Devon.
One of them was in Bournemouth, which was commissioned in 2013, and the other three are at the new Devon Energy solar farm.
The two farms were completed in 2018.
Devon has the largest solar energy network in the world.
The solar farm in Boulogne-Billancourt, in the south-east of the country, is currently the largest, and its capacity is expected for 2021.
The British Renewables Agency said the site will supply electricity to Bexle and Wigan for 20 years, with another 20 years for the rest of the company´s generation.
The company is also building two new solar farms to take its solar generation capacity to more than 20MW.
The Boulougne-Barry plant is scheduled to be operational in 2021, and Moovii is also working on an electric vehicle battery plant in Bixley.
The wind farms in Wigan and Bexleshire are due to begin construction in 2020.
