Lightsource bp is working on a proposal for a solar installation at Northfield House Farm, Rugby Road, Cotesbach, Lutterworth, LE17 4HS. The proposal involves Lightsource bp funding and operating a solar installation that will connect into the local electricity network, and will have an output power capacity of 26MW (megawatts).

Through our initial assessments we have selected the site area shown below, and we’re now undertaking a wide range of environmental assessments to help shape our plans. These include landscape and visual, heritage and archaeology, ecology and more.

  • 6,690
    homes powered per year (equivalent)
  • 6,810
    tonnes of carbon emissions saved
  • 1,510
    cars taken off the road per year (equivalent)

Due to the current situation in the UK surrounding Coronavirus (Covid-19), and following Government advice we have cancelled our planned information event on 30th March 2020 at Cotesbach Village Hall. However we are keen to ensure that the community remain fully engaged in this process and have therefore made the relevant details available online:

As well as additional information about Lightsource bp solar farms:

We’re committed to remaining open and engaged with the community during this process.
