JBM secured planning permission from East Riding council for a 50MW solar and battery storage scheme in March 2020. This is the first of a large portfolio of post-subsidy solar and solar/storage generation projects that JBM intends to build in the coming years.
Covering more than 200 acres of land at Scurf Dyke Farm, Hutton Cranswick, this project will generate enough low-carbon energy to power the equivalent of 19,567 homes’ annual energy needs. It will also make a valuable contribution towards meeting the government’s long-term net-zero targets.
Speaking after planning consent was received, David Cramer, director at JBM Solar said: “We are delighted to receive planning consent for our first UK subsidy-free solar/battery scheme. This is the culmination of many months of hard work by our development team and marks an important step on the road to developing a large portfolio of JBM projects in the coming months and years. It is also gratifying that our Scurf Dyke solar project will provide a valuable community benefit, with a commitment to help fund much needed sustainable transport infrastructure in the local area.”
