Cadent, Britain’s largest gas distribution network has launched its first solar farm, comprising 388 solar panels. The panels have been installed at Cadent’s site in Brisley, North Norfolk. The PV array has a peak capacity of 130kW, enough to power the site and nine other above ground Cadent installations nearby. Any excess electricity generated at the site will be fed into the grid, helping to power local homes, schools and businesses, the company has said. The panels have an estimated lifespan of 25 years, producing around 12MW a year, and are fitted with power optimisers to ensure they remain efficient.
