NextEnergy now has around 70 solar plants totalling over 600MW and said it aimed to acquire more.
Previous acquisitions include Salcey Farm and Pierces Farm, with a total capacity of 7.2MWp and integrated battery storage with a combined capacity of 1MW, acquired in May for £9.3 million.
Gilley’s Dam, acquired in December, is the fund’s first plant with a long-term take-or-pay power purchase agreement with an industrial counterpart.
