We are JBM Solar - your trusted partner in solar energy.

We are at the heart of the UK’s renewables revolution. We’re helping to realise our collective goal of net zero emissions through the deployment of solar energy.

We deliver successful outcomes for landowners, communities, and the planet. We believe this is best achieved through positive stakeholder relationships and listening to the voices of the community.

From identification of a suitable site, through the entire development process, our expert team is on hand to capitalise on, and deliver, a project’s full untapped potential.

Our vision

Our vision is to power the UK with reliable, affordable, clean solar energy, and to add value through innovation and investment. We’re bringing the benefits of solar energy to communities and the planet – at the scale and pace that is needed to help the country meet its net zero ambitions.

Why choose JBM?

Our success speaks for itself. In ten years, we have secured planning permission in the UK and Ireland for over 98% of the projects we have worked on, resulting in planning consent for more than 1GW of solar projects.

We remain committed to using the lessons we have learned in this time to continue delivering large-scale solar farms – ranging from 30 to 500 megawatts – and biodiversity net gains on every project.

Working with JBM Solar means working with an integrated team of experts who understand what it takes to deliver first-class solar energy projects and to leave a positive legacy.
