An Irish renewable energy company has completed installing solar power plants with a total capacity of 30MW in the UK.

BNRG Renewables has built a 20MW solar plant at Sycamore Farm in Kent, which will produce enough electricity to power more than 6,600 homes. Another 10MW Hill Farm facility in the Isle of Wight will generate enough clean energy to power more than 3,600 households.

Total investment in the two projects exceed €52 million (£42.2m), the company said, which is expected to sign another contract to build a new 15MW plant in West Sussex.

The construction funding for the projects was provided by British investment specialist Octopus Investments and were jointly constructed by BNRG and Lightsource Renewable Energy.
