Exagen submitted plans for the battery asset in January 2023, as reported by Solar Power Portal, and confirmed that the project would be capable of providing enough power for 80% of the homes in the county. £270 million in financing is set to be allocated to the project and will connect directly into a new substation owned by National Grid.

Although the energisation date has not been finalised, Exagen plans to commission the project in 2029, and operate the project for 40 years.
