Developer Lightsource BP, which announced the completion and connection of the 2.29MWp array yesterday, said the new farm will meet around 30 per cent of NSG Group’s annual power demand at the site.

A new subsidy-free solar farm with a total capacity of 2.29MW has been connected to the UK grid. Developer Lightsource BP said it funded the entire project, which will provide 30% of the annual electricity needs of NSG Group’s European Technical Centre in Lathom, Lancashire. NSG Group is buying the renewable electricity via a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Lightsource BP as part of a 25-year contract. As well as reducing electricity costs, the solar project will also help NSG Group cut carbon emissions by 848 tonnes a year – equivalent to taking 180 family cars off the road.
