Grid Applications

Securing a national electricity grid connection is fundamental to the success of most renewable energy projects. Lark Energy Group has the experience and expertise to ensure that your solar farm or renewable energy scheme meets the requirements for connection to the grid.

What we do:

  • We offer a complete grid connection acquisition service as part of our development package.
  • We can arrange novation and progression of an existing connection offer or acquire an offer from scratch and assess its viability before progression to connection.
  • We have established relationships with Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) across the country at designer and delivery level. We can facilitate connection to the electricity network of both ground mount and rooftop solar installations.
  • We are also involved in innovation projects conducted by the DNOs including one of the first connections under UK Power Network’s ‘Flexible Plug and Play’ scheme and a large scale ground mount in the WPD Active Network Management Scheme.

How we do it:

  • We manage connection of your PV solar installation to the electricity network including all legal consents and metering.
  • Our teams of specialist contractors undertake contestable connections work to the point of connection, including cable installation, directional drilling and substation design and construction.
  • Along with the planning permission, we also obtain all the technical consents required for connection including wayleaves, easements, S50 licences, river crossing consents and gas/fuel pipeline consents.
  • We can also design and construct substations for adoption close to the point of connection, in order that the cable connection route at 11 kV or 33 kV can be privately maintained.
