BSR Energy obtained planning consent for Coldharbour Farm Solar Park in September 2023 from Torridge District Council.

Coldharbour Farm Solar Park

This project, when built, will generate 49.99MWp of solar photovoltaic energy to the electricity network, producing enough clean renewable energy to power 12,501 family homes* per year, a saving of 11,072 tonnes CO2e!

* Based on an annual average domestic consumption per household (Great Britain) of 3,799 kWh. Source BEIS, Regional and Local authority electricity consumption statics 2018.

! Based on ‘Emissions associated with the generation of electricity at a power station (Electricity generation factors do not include transmission and distribution). Source BEIS, Greenhouse gas reporting: conversion factors 2020.

Location information

The project is situated off Coldharbour Farm, Ashreigney, east of the village of Dolton, south-west of Riddlecombe. The approximately 160 acres (65Ha) site will be located on several fields which are currently used for agricultural farming.

In addition to having solar panels on the site, the proposal includes biodiversity and landscape enhancement measures, such as the gapping up of existing hedgerows to ensure there is minimal visual and environmental impact.

The solar park will feature the latest technology from the industry, with a primary focus to maximise the yield over the given area.
