British Solar Renewables (BSR) has secured a contract to manage the 5MW Westmill solar farm in Oxfordshire in the UK.

The community project, which is located near Watchfield, is owned by Westmill Solar Co-operative.

The co-operative chose BSR to manage the facility following a competitive tender.

BSR has already started work on Westmill by carrying out a plant review to optimise performance.

Westmill Solar Co-operative director Martin Allman said: “BSR have demonstrated a commitment to achieving high standards of quality and value for money on many other solar farm sites.”

BSR managing director Graham Harding said: “This is a flagship project for us and we’re excited for the opportunity to further demonstrate the value we are able to add to community energy projects which are an increasingly important part of the UK energy market.”
