At Furlong Energy we prioritise building strong relationships with our landowners and the communities they live in. These connections are based on mutual trust, respect, and collaboration.

When developing a solar project, we work closely with landowners to ensure that our operations are sensitive to their concerns and to minimise any impacts on their land and their way of life. We understand that landowners are often deeply connected to their properties and have a personal interest in the land that goes beyond its monetary value.

By working with us to develop solar projects, you will enjoy great benefits including:

Securing a consistent source of income for you and your family for several decades.

Diversifying your revenue streams whilst decreasing the expenses on land upkeep.

Enhancing the value and appeal of your land for potential buyers.

Contributing to the fight against global warming through active involvement in renewable energy solutions.

We also recognise that landowners often have valuable insights and knowledge about the local environment and the history of the area, and we seek to learn from and respect their perspectives. We value open and honest communication with our landowners and are committed to being transparent about our activities.

The Development Process

1. Project Feasibility

In collaboration with the landowner, we assess land’s suitability for solar development and potential for grid capacity availability.


2. Grid connection

Once appointed by the landowner, we apply for a grid connection offer.


3. Land contracts

We negotiate the key commercial terms for leasing your land and then sign an Option to Lease agreement.


4. Planning

We prepare the relevant documentation and submit a planning application for the agreed site.


5. Construction

Once planning permission is granted the project will be ready to build.


6. Commissioning

At the end of construction and project commission, the solar farm will become fully operational.

Local Communities

We take pride in delivering projects that adhere to rigorous environmental standards, and our projects are always designed to enhance biodiversity, minimise their impacts on local wildlife and to preserve the surrounding environment.

We work in partnership with local communities, as they enable us to understand their specific needs and concerns. By working collaboratively with local stakeholders, we can ensure that our initiatives are tailored to the unique social, environmental and economic contexts of the communities we serve. Furthermore, we believe that community engagement fosters mutual respect, trust, and empathy, which are essential ingredients for sustainable development and positive change.
