Consultation launched on plans for solar farm on Anglesey

Enso Energy Ltd is consulting on its plans for a solar farm and energy storage facility on land in the centre of Anglesey, known as Alaw Môn Solar Farm. It is inviting residents, businesses and stakeholders to help give their comments on the proposals.

Situated to the south of Llyn Alaw, the proposed development comprises the construction and operation of a grid connected solar farm with energy storage.

It is estimated that the solar farm with a proposed 40 year operational life will supply up to 160 megawatts (MW) of clean renewable electricity to the National Grid.  The proposal is the equivalent to the electricity demands of approximately 33,935 homes each year (the equivalent of nearly all the dwellings on Anglesey, according to the 2011 Census).

The consultation is taking place for 6 weeks from Thursday 24th June 2021 to Wednesday 4th August 2021.  Comments are invited until Wednesday 4th August 2021.

Residents and local stakeholders are being invited to engage and discuss the proposals either virtually or face to face.

At the  virtual webinar on Tuesday 6th July 2021 at 6pm, the team will explain more about the proposals.

At the two public consultation events in the local area, the team will have more information about the proposals and will be available to answer questions
