Agreement to acquire a solar power plant of 19.4MWp

-      Share purchase agreement signed to acquire 19.4MWp Boxted Airfield solar power plant ("Boxted Airfield") for up to £20.6 million

-      NESF has now secured eleven assets for a total of c. 124 MWp and a total investment value of c. £145 million (c. 79% of equity proceeds raised to date)

NESF is pleased to announce the signing of a share purchase agreement ("SPA") to acquire a special purpose vehicle owning the Boxted Airfield solar power plant project.  The plant will be constructed under an Engineering, Procurement and Construction contract ("EPC") negotiated by NESF's Investment Manager, NextEnergy Capital Limited. 

The Boxted Airfield plant is located in Essex, and is to be accredited under the 1.4 Renewable Obligation Certificate ("ROC") regime.  Construction has begun on the plant, with site preparation complete and civil works under way. In the event the plant is not commissioned by March 2015 or does not secure the 1.4 ROC regime, NESF has the right to terminate the SPA and not acquire the plant without incurring any financial penalties.

The Boxted Airfield plant is located on low grade agricultural land within the former RAF Boxted airfield site. The site development plan has been elaborated to achieve significant benefit to the immediate local wildlife population and diversity.
