Two solar farms which were previously under the stewardship of the now defunct Lark Energy are still being maintained by a subsidiary of the company – Lark Energy Services.
The organisation who’s website described it as “an award-winning provider of commercial and utility scale renewable energy schemes” went into administration late last week and are believed to have run two solar farms in Dumfries and Galloway, but this would not be entirely confirmed by Lark Energy Services
A spokesperson for the company said: “You’ll appreciate from the Lark Energy side of things it’s in liquidation at the moment so I can’t really comment on that. But we are still maintaining the sites as Lark Energy Services, we’re obviously not Lark Energy, but as Lark Energy Services we are still maintaining these sites at the moment. It’s not something I can go into great detail on.”
It was announced last week that documents filed with Companies House last week indicated that a company formerly named Lark Energy (now Renewables Solar (UK) Limited) appointed PFK Cooper Parry as its voluntary liquidator. Yet little is known of the future fate of these Scottish sites.
Pressed on whether any physical jobs in Scotland had been lost due to the company going into liquidation, Lark Energy Services added:”There’s nobody actually on site at those farms. We monitor them remotely and if anything happens we send an engineer out to them. They are being maintained by a different company, the maintenance contracts are separate to the actual construction side. It’s the construction side that’s gone.”
