Projects under development and construction
Alleston Solar Farm
A solar energy development of up to 49MW in Pembrokeshire
We have created this website to provide information about our emerging proposals and to enable people to contact us with questions and feedback.
This webpage will be kept updated as the project develops to keep you informed and to hear your views and ideas.
Come along to our drop in events!
We'll be in Pembroke, Lamphey and Pembroke Dock to talk about Alleston Solar Farm. Come along to meet the team, find out more about the project and have your questions answered.

About Alleston Solar Farm
We are developing proposals for a solar farm on approximately 100ha (247 acres) of agricultural land between Lamphey and Pembroke, close to the Pembroke Dock-Carmarthen railway line.
Solar power is a crucial technology to help overcome our energy security and climate challenges. If consented, the solar farm would contribute to the delivery of the UK, Welsh Government and Pembrokeshire County Council policy objectives, diversify the energy mix, and facilitate the transition to low carbon energy, whilst decreasing the dependency on fossil fuels.
We believe the site has potential for export up to 49MW at peak capacity, powering up to 15,000 Welsh homes every year (based on average Welsh domestic consumption of 3,325kWh per year).
The project will deliver a Community Benefit Fund over the course of its 40-year lifetime to benefit local projects and initiatives including education, energy efficiency, environmental improvements, and improved community facilities.
On 29 and 30 November 2023, we visited Pembroke, Lamphey and Pembroke Dock to present our proposals and hear your feedback. These are the materials that were on display at the exhibition. These will remain online in the project document section of the website throughout the planning process.

You can provide feedback on the project through the Get In Touch page or contact us by email at UKprojects@statkraft.com, by post at FREEPOST Statkraft or by phone on 0800 772 0668.
In early 2024, we will provide a report on the feedback that we've received. At our exhibitions in Spring 2024, we will show how we have used your feedback to refine our proposals.

Stage 1: Site Selection
Alleston Farm was selected following research to identify suitable sites. No public engagement was carried out during this time in case the site did not pass the criteria required for development.
Stage 2: Pre-planning
Autumn 2023 – Summer 2024
We will submit scoping and carry out early engagement with local communities, stakeholders and elected representatives to inform the emerging proposals.
This will be followed by statutory consultation on our detailed proposals.
Stage 3: Submit Planning Application and Await Decision
As the proposed development will generate more than 10MW it is a Development of National Significance and will be submitted to Planning and Environment Decisions Wales (PEDW) and determined by Welsh Ministers. Although not determined locally, Pembrokeshire County Council is a key consultee.
Stage 4: Construction
The recommendation from PEDW and decision by the Welsh Minister would be anticipated in Winter 2024 or early 2025.
If the project is approved, construction is expected to take 6 to 9 months. Planning conditions are used to manage elements of construction.
Stage 5: Operation
The project is managed by a regionally based maintenance team, and operations are controlled by detailed planning conditions.
