Arun Construction Services Ltd is delighted to announce that G59 and energisation was successfully achieved at the Westhampnett Solar Farm and battery storage project on behalf of West Sussex County Council! This complex project combines 7.4MW of solar with a 4.4MW/4.06MWh of battery storage on a closed 35 acre landfill site owned by West Sussex County Council.

It is the UK’s second subsidy-free solar farm, and the first by a local authority using battery storage. Arun Construction Services Ltd were the EPC for the project and wish to thank all their partners for their expertise and patience throughout this contract.
