Solar farm weed management

Twig undertook a program of weed spraying across 4 large scale solar sites using equipment specifically developed for solar farms. This equipment ensured that the risk of damage to the solar panels was minimised whilst significantly increasing efficiencies to the otherwise labour intensive spraying activity.

Our investment in specialist equipment also enabled us to remove ruts, cultivate the seedbed and seed in between the PV rows. Our Ecological contracting experience gave us the required knowledge to ensure that the ecological and conservation planning elements were adhered to giving enhanced environmental diversification. Our off set low profile mowers enabled inter row mowing keeping the areas tidy and within expectation of the sites’ investors.

Our consistent delivery of projects to a high standard and on budget, including solar farming, resulted in the following testimonial;

I have been managing field-scale solar sites for a German company for the past two years, and during that time, the Twig Group have been excellent at dealing with a wide range of landscaping issues. Such works have included; hedge planting, the establishment of wildflower meadows beneath the arrays and routine mowing . Twig’s specialist machinery is ideal for the tight areas between the panels and their attention to detail is second to none.
I will definitely continue to use their services in the future and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”
