It has set itself ambitious sustainability targets - including a commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2050 - and onsite solar will contribute to meeting these goals.
The company also needed the partner to deliver a tailored solution that would have no disruption to its site operations during installation or operation. For example, many sites operate with back-up generators creating additional engineering challenges.
Anglian Water’s solar PV programme comprises sites ranging between 200 kWp and 12 MWp in size and is expected to total approximately 30 MWp of installed capacity.
We have been active in the UK solar PPA market since 2013, and have a dedicated team developing projects with our installation partners.
