Our 4 Step Process
Site appraisal, legal review and heads of terms
Initially, we will undertake a desktop review and assessment of the proposed site for utility scale solar projects, looking at several key elements that define a successful location. These include local planning guidelines, Site-specific planning constraints, and the nearest location for access to electrical grid connection point. In the event a site is successful in this process, we will issue a 'heads of terms' document containing our commercial terms and legal offer to the landowner. Once this is executed, we will conduct a title search of the property and enter into an option agreement to lease (OTL). Upon signing of the OTL, Soleire Renewable Holdings Limited will begin the initial development cycle.
Permits, licences and authorisations
We engage our professional team to complete all the required assessments and feasibility studies, to include archaeology, environmental, ecology, heritage, transport etc., to ensure we have addressed and identified any site constraints, the potential issues before submitting a planning application. We engage and liaison with key stakeholders of local authorities and state agencies at an early stage of the proposed project. We also complete the outline design of the project at this stage and liaise with the grid operators to obtain the most economically viable and suitable grid connection point. Throughout the entire process, we keep the landowner updated on progress.
Design and engineering
Once planning is granted for the utility scale solar project, we immediately begin the detailed construction design, considering any comments received during the planning process. Our experience allows us to optimise the design so that the completed solar project will deliver the best performance.
Construction and commissioning
Once the detailed design is completed and all permits in place, we begin construction. We work with leading Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors who have a wealth of experience in constructing solar projects.
