Land ownership - not suitable for a ranking table
The Wiki-Solar Database holds details of the landowner, where known, and it is shown on the maps.
Site land-owners are identified against 3.8% of the operating capacity on the Wiki-Solar Database (of which the top 30 account for 2.7%).
Even when this proportion becomes significantly higher, we do not propose to produce ranking tables as we do for other participant categories. This is because few land-owners (apart from government departments and utilities perhaps) would have a sufficiently widespread land bank to be able to support more than a few isolated projects. Most listed land-owners are likely to be the pre-existing owners of specific plots which developers have identified as suitable sites.
Owner - offtakers
A special case is property owners who wish to take a significant part of the power produced by the solar generating station. Several roof-top and ground-mounted projects have been developed on this basis, often referred to as 'net metering' or 'self-consumption' applications as further described here.
Some organisations which adopt such self-consumption at multiple sites (and would appear in ranking tables if we had them) are:
