OAKLEY BUSH SOLAR AND BESS SCHEME

The project

Buccleuch Group is working towards submitting a planning application for a new solar and battery energy storage system (BESS) project near Geddington.

The new project, known as Oakley Bush solar and BESS scheme, situated off Newton Road, forms part of Buccleuch Group’s wider land use strategy for the Boughton Estate, and will be capable of generating up to 55GWhrs per year of energy, once operational, enough electricity to supply up to 20,000 homes.

Solar projects offer the opportunity to use energy generated when it is sunny to convert to electricity, which can be balanced by Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS), which are technological solutions that reserve electric power in batteries for future consumption.
