Ethical Power acquires PPS’ 250MW solar-storage pipeline

April 4, 2023

The development business of Public Power Solutions (PPS), which includes a 250MW pipeline of large-scale UK solar PV and battery energy storage co-located projects, has been acquired by Ethical Power Development Limited.

PPS has supported over 50 public and community organisations to deliver large-scale renewable energy projects throughout the UK, most notably developing a 62MW solar scheme for the Science Museum in Wroughton and providing “comprehensive consultancy support” for the Ministry of Defence in delivering four solar farms on the defence estate, a statement said.

PPS has also developed two large-scale battery energy storage projects in Swindon, with the 50 MW Mannington battery being the largest in the UK at the time. 

PPS and Ethical Power have been working together since July 2021 and have previously partnered on the development of a number of projects.
