BayWa r.e. has sold the Homestead solar park in England to CEE. BayWa r.e. will take over the technical operations management of the park, which has a capacity of 17.7MW peak. The plant is being financed by the Ärzteversorgung Westfalen-Lippe (ÄVWL).
Located near Towcester, around 10 miles south of Northampton, the project was completed in the spring 2015 and was connected to the public grid under the ROC scheme. The Homestead plant has now been transferred to its new owner.
Matthias Taft, Board Member of BayWa AG, responsible for the energy business, explained: "With the sale of the fourth PV project to CEE, we are continuing our successful collaboration with this company. I'm also very pleased to announce that, in the coming weeks, we will connect further solar projects with a capacity of 130MW to the grid". Detlef Schreiber, CEO of CEE added: "Together with BayWa r.e, CEE has been able to expand its PV portfolio in Great Britain to 60MW. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership."
