The investments in energy assets will enable the country’s largest businesses to connect to zero-carbon solar energy and use battery storage to support the grid in moving towards widespread renewable energy generation.

We want to partner with farmers and landowners across England for our solar and battery storage investments. Leasing your land for utility-scale energy assets can help you to earn long-term, stable income – while playing a role in the UK’s journey to net zero.

If you’re not sure where to start, there are six factors to consider when checking land suitability:

  1. Is your land near a good grid connection?
  2. Does your land have the right legal status?
  3. Is the site large enough?
  4. For solar, is the location sunny enough?
  5. Is your land away from residential areas?
  6. Is the terrain suitable?

Our expert team at Centrica Business Solutions can provide support in helping you find out if your land is viable.
