Stage 01: Site Appraisal, Legal Review & Heads of Terms
Upon registering a site, we will undertake a desktop site review looking at several key elements that work to define a successful solar site. Should a site be successful in this process, we will then issue 'heads of terms' document that contains our financial and legal offer to the landowner. This document indicates the term of the land lease and the yearly rental income. Once this is executed, we will conduct a title search of the property and look to enter into an option agreement to lease. When this is executed we immediately start the development process at our own cost.
Stage 02: Permits, Licences & Authorisations
We engage our professional team to complete all the required studies, environmental, ecology, and heritage etc., to ensure we have addressed all the potential issues prior to submitting a planning application so as to ensure we are successful when we submit the final applications. We also conduct the outline design of the project at this stage and liaise with the grid operators to obtain the most suitable grid connection point. We always keep the land owner up to date of the unfolding developments.
Stage 03: Design and Engineering
Once all the regulatory consents have been obtained, we immediately begin the detailed construction design taking into account any comments that where received during the planning process. Our experience allows us to design optimise the design so that the completed plant will deliver superior performance.
Stage 04: Construction and Commissioning
Once the detailed design in completed we start to construct the project. Typically this is the quickest part of the development with construction taking between 4 – 6 weeks. We work with leading Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors who have a wealth of experience in constructing solar plants. Once the plant is built there is a short period of testing and then the plant is commissioned and operational.
