Franck Woitiez, CEO of TagEnergy said: “Chapel Farm will provide a significant clean energy boost to the national grid and help grow renewables’ share of it.”

While Santander’s Mark Cumbo said the bank was delighted to have supported the Chapel Farm project.

Harmony Energy’s CEO and cofounder, Peter Kavanagh, said: “The completion and energisation of the Chapel Farm scheme is another significant milestone for us especially as it is the first JV project we have delivered with TagEnergy which has been a great partner.”
