Our founders have been in the forefront of the development of the market for utility-scale photovoltaic power generation in the UK and worldwide. Philip Wolfe wrote the first book on the topic, founded the leading information provider and advises on projects and the market.

What are solar parks?

Solar parks (also called solar farms and solar ranches) are large scale, usually ground-mounted, solar generating stations designed to feed power into the utility grid, as further described here.

Though the first such installations date back to the 1980’s the majority of utility-scale generation has been installed in this century as described in this outline history.

Our experience in utility-scale solar projects

WolfeWare and its people have been involved in commercial and community-owned solar parks since the earliest applications as further described here.

(Our experience and involvement here and elsewhere in the website, refers to activities within WolfeWare and its associates, such as Wiki-Solar & Feed-in Tariffs Ltd, and predecessor organisations, including BP Solar, Intersolar Group & Ownergy Plc.)
