One Planet works with landowners to develop solar farms and battery installations. The typical development cycle is made up of these stages:
Assessment – we will undertake a review of your landholding to confirm it is suitable for a solar or battery project.
Grid – we will work with your local electricity distribution network to ensure that the project can connect to the grid.
Planning – we will prepare, submit and promote your property through the planning process to obtain the necessary permission for the project.
Property Lease – we will work with you to agree an option to lease that contains all the necessary provisions to protect you as the landowner while enabling the tenant to raise finance to build the project.
Construction – we work with a range of infrastructure partners who will provide the funding to build out the project. Our independence to choose the right partner for the project once planning is in place ensures that the it is built out as quickly as possible and not simply “land-banked”.
We are happy to pay for all of the above steps at our own risk. If you prefer, we are also happy to engage in an open-book joint-venture with you to share the development risks and rewards.
