Kinblethmont Solar Park is a 5MW ground mounted large solar PV project on farmland within Kinblethmont Estate near Arbroath, Angus.
The 10.5Ha (26acre) site has been specifically selected for development as it has excellent levels of irradiance (daylight), it is gently sloping to the south and has a simple electricity grid connection.
The solar park will produce enough energy to power around 3500 homes.
An application for planning permission is currently submitted to Angus Council and it is anticipated that permission will be granted in mid 2015.
The current proposal is to have Kinblethmont Solar Park constructed and generating electricity in early 2016.
