A solar firm has completed six solar roof installations at Viridor’s sites.
They were installed across southern England and generate 841kW of electricity.
Solarcentury’s systems aim is to optimise the energy generation capability of each site, decrease the waste and recycling firm’s operational spend on power and its reliance on higher carbon grid electricity.
The designs have incorporated export limitation devices to manage grid constraints and interlinks with onsite power generation from an anaerobic digestion plant.
Chris Jonas, Director of Business Development for Viridor said: “At Viridor we are looking to maximise our energy generation capability so we can reduce our reliance on grid energy and therefore cut our carbon emissions.
“Over the last year, we have invested in a range of renewable energy generation technologies to help us develop a network of decentralised energy hubs, to power Viridor’s operations and also to supply clean renewable energy to the National Grid.”
