Battery Storage worth it? £75,000 rent, 4 acres

Very location dependant and some marginal economics in these developments but circa £1200 plus is pretty common with some rents up towards that 2k.

if there’s a synchronous condenser going in seperately then there are some quite significant rents per acre being thrown about for them so make sure you are pushing that in the deal.

Happy to recommend some agents that I have worked with if you want to pm.

So where’s the difference between £1200 and £2k per acre you quote and the £18.75k the OP claims to have been offered?

Just seems too good to be true to me.

How in the living fudge can someone afford to pay you 1.5K a MW when a wholesale MW is normally sold for less than £100??
£1.5k/MW-h of storage. That's a chunk of storage capacity which could be turned over every day or so. Buy at 5p/kW-h and sell at 15p and you're making £100/day (£36,500/year) - and the big guys will be doing much better than that.

Because that battery capacity will be used many times per year, probably several times a day.

That's because it's not a MW but a MWh, which is a measure of energy, not power.

This is one of my (many) pet hates, but valid here, as the facility will also have a MW rating which describes how quickly it can charge and discharge (probably different rates)

First rule of engineering - get the units right.
