Starting in October 2024, Great Britain will completely abandon coal as a source of electricity generation. As a significant step in this direction, the coal-fired West Burton Power Station ceased its operations in 2022. The decommissioning of the West Burton Power Station offers a unique opportunity to rejuvenate the region by transitioning to clean and eco-friendly energy solutions.
The West Burton Solar Project is named after its grid connection point at the existing National Grid substation at the West Burton Power Station.
The West Burton Solar Project has now progressed to the Examination Stage.
The Preliminary Meeting was adjourned on Thursday 07 September 2023. Details of Part 2 of the Preliminary Meeting will be issued in due course. Please refer to the project website for an updated project timeline. https://www.westburtonsolar.co.uk/
