BNRG Renewables, a renewable energy company based in Ireland, is gearing up to commence the construction of its proposed €35m solar park in Kent, UK in September 2013.

The 20MW utility-scale project, to be constructed on 120 acres of land at Sycamore Farm, will feature nearly 73,000 solar panels with each having a capacity of 245 watts.

The renewable energy company had secured a 25-year planning permission from Shepway District Council’s Development Control Committee earlier in January 2013.

Financing for the construction is being provided by British group Octopus Investments, while the BNRG and Lightsource will jointly develop the solar project.

BNRG programme manager Tom Brinicombe told the BBC that at the time of approval the company had worked in alliance with stakeholders and local residents adopting their feedbacks into the project.

"We remain committed to ensuring that as well as generating a significant amount of renewable energy, this project will also be well-screened and will increase local biodiversity," Brinicombe added.
