The Opportunity

ESCO Pacific provides Landowners with a significant value proposition that enables long-term diversification and de-risking of revenue streams that would otherwise be unattainable while holding land as a long term investment.

ESCO Pacific can help unlock hidden value in lower grade agricultural land, brown field sites and generally under utilised land.

Value is received via attractive lease rental payments generated from the long term leasing of land for the sole purposes of a ground mounted utility scale solar farm development.

Land Requirements

Ground mounted utility scale solar is scalable and can be adapted to suit any configuration of land considered for such a development. ESCO Pacific assesses each potential site on its own merits but we consider the following suitability criteria as ideal for our requirements:

  • Minimum available area of 40 Hectares (or circa 100 Acres)
  • Flat land with less than a 5 degree pitch
  • Land within close proximity to a grid substation or high voltage line
  • Land that is owned freehold (mortgaged land is acceptable)
  • Land free from buildings and obstructions
  • Land free from protected species and protected vegetation
  • Land without utility services above or below ground
  • Direct access or rights to access a public road
  • Land free from flooding events greater than 1 in 50 years
  • Well screened land with limited nearby visual receptors

The Process

The initial phase of progressing a potential site involves ESCO Pacific performing a detailed but rapid desk based feasibility on the land, checking for any development constraints and for proximity to a grid connection point.

Following desk based feasibility a site inspection would be required including meeting with the Landowner(s) and discussing the next phase of moving the development forward.
