UK-based renewable company Push Energy has been awarded funding worth £1.5 million to build large-scale solar farms in the country.

The firm claims it has secured grid connections for around 300MW of capacity across the UK, 20MW of which has received full planning permission.

Stuart Bradshaw, CEO of Push Energy said: “The investment will enable us to develop more field-scale solar farms which will help play a substantial role in achieving the UK Government’s renewable energy targets.”

The funding is part of the Low Carbon Innovation Fund (LCIF), which is managed by energy and environment merchant bank Turquoise International.
