Cowdown Solar Farm

AGR, in partnership with Ingenious, have successfully constructed and commissioned a 40 MW solar installation on land to the south of the A303 in Andover, Hampshire.

Having received consent from Test Valley Borough Council by way of appeal on 24th December 2015, we knew it would be a challenge to deliver the project before 31st March 2016 in order to qualify for ROCs. But due to the hard work of our delivery team we managed to pile, cable and commission over 155,000 solar panels in 10 weeks.

The Cowdown site covers a total of 155 acres, and will supply approximately 39.32 GWh of electricity in to the local electricity network annually. This is enough to supply over 9,380 households* with electricity each year.
