The Varley Solar Farm is located southeast of Cromhall in South Gloucestershire and will be capable of generating around 25MW of clean, low cost renewable electricity.  

The site has been chosen as it has good solar irradiation levels, lies outside of any statutory environmental, archaeological and landscape designations and due to its proximity to a viable grid connection.

RES has designed the solar farm so that it will fit sensitively in the surrounding landscape. A number of detailed assessments have been carried out to ensure any impact upon the environment, landscape, heritage and local residents is appropriately assessed and mitigated. These assessments include:

  • Landscape and Visual
  • Ecology
  • Cultural Heritage and Archaeology
  • Flood risk
  • Traffic and Transport
  • Noise
  • Glint and Glare
