Located just outside of Norwich, the Trowse solar farm located on the borders of the A146 and the A47 Norwich Southern Bypass. The site was selected due to its overhead line connection to the distribution grid. Trowse solar farm shares its location with its counterpart, Trowse 2, situated in adjacent fields.
We collaborated closely with English Heritage during the site's development to determine its location. This was essential due to the presence of the nearby scheduled monument, Arminghall Henge—an ancient late-Neolithic timber henge—and to ensure avoidance of the ancient ring ditches.
Additionally, owing to its close proximity to the nearby A-roads, we consulted with Highways England during the planning process to design the layout of the solar farm.
As a way of contributing to the community, we provided a generous donation to a local primary school for them to utilise in making improvements to the school.
The solar farm was constructed in 2016 and has been operating since.
