Solar Energy

Proven track record

We have a close to 100% success rate at achieving planning permission for large scale solar farm projects outside the green belt


Experience and Expertise

We are a group of dedicated engineers, environmental scientists and financiers who have worked in the energy industry for over 30 years


A Trusted Partner

We work closely with Landowners throughout the development process, ensuring that each step is completed to the highest of standards - from planning through to completion

  • From the earliest stages of concept and explanation, through to the meticulous attention to ensuring a smooth progress through planning and onto development, the Wessex team were confident, competent and professional. As notable was their supportive attitude based on integrity and trust. We always felt part of a winning team.

  • The development of the Huntspill Level Solar Park ran very smoothly thanks to Wessex. From the initial discussions, through to the planning stages and then during final execution, we felt reassured by the team's expertise across all areas. We developed a good working relationship with Wessex and were able to have honest conversations about the project. Their level of professionalism was evident throughout and we would feel confident in recommending them as developers and partners. We now receive a decent and stable income from the land which rises each year and is much needed.

  • It wasn’t difficult to come to an agreement with the WSE people. It was clear what they wanted to do and what they were offering. On agreement from us, they just got on with it and while they kept us informed of progress, they did everything and still do. The immediate and long term returns from field solar are greater and more reliable than any cropping and that stability has helped us in managing the various family interests and planning for the next generation.

The solar farms that we have developed are capable of generating enough clean, renewable energy to power approximately 68,000 homes


Our team has worked together for over 30 years on some 72,000 MW of power generation projects in 80 countries


We have developed 24 large solar farms in England and Wales totalling 224 MW

Generating electricity from the sun is clean, quiet and sustainable, and provides power when it is needed most - during the day.

We are proud to be one of the UK’s first solar companies and continue to grow at a time when combatting climate change has never been more prominent or important.

Unlike other companies, we only develop solar farms. This is reflected in our expert knowledge of the sector. With years of combined experience in the energy industry and a highly dedicated team, we are in a prime position to offer landowners the best chance of getting a solar park built on their site. 

We welcome enquiries from landowners, land agents and investors who may be interested in working with us.
