Our Process


Site Identified

1. Site Identification

Following a site visit, we will carry out a high level assessment of the suitability of your land for a solar farm installation, including an initial review of planning constraints and a grid network capacity evaluation.

Contract Agreement

2. Contract Agreement

If the site is deemed suitable, we negotiate terms with the landowner and if we reach agreement, an option agreement with draft lease will be sent to the landowner’s Solicitor for review. Our standard form Option agreements are for 5 years with a 35 year Lease.

Planning Application

3. Planning Application

As a responsible renewable energy developer, Strategic Power Projects work with a professional team of planning, environmental and engineering design experts to pull together a comprehensive and environmentally sensitive planning application which is managed through the planning process to final decision. In addition, we work closely with local communities to ensure full transparency with regard to our projects.

Planning Approval & Grid Offer

4. Planning Approval & Grid Offer

Following the Grant of planning permission we instruct our consultant grid engineers to apply for connection to the grid. In ROI this is currently an annual process run every September, leading to a grid offer from Eirgrid within the following 10-14 months.

Route To Market

5. Route To Market

The final stage of the project is securing a route to market either by way of the RESS Auction process in ROI or a Corporate Power Purchase Agreement with a high energy user.

Construction

6. Construction

Once Planning, Grid Connection and a route to market have been secured, the project is ready to start construction. This phase can take from 3 to 12 months to complete depending on the scale of the project and grid connection.
