In March 2015, Lightsource successfully constructed one of the first ever private substations to be built in the UK. The 132kv substation was constructed in order to connect two sites, Black Peak and Munceys, to the National Grid, in the absence of an existing point of connection. Though the project was a first for Lightsource, and a relatively new endeavour across the UK, we were able to draw on the extensive breadth of experience in our technical and development teams, as well as our strong relationships with industry partners, to successfully complete the project.

Once completed, the two nearby sites covered a total of 260 acres, with a combined installed capacity of 50MW, capable of powering more than 16,000 homes.
