Anglian Water progresses ambitious renewable energy strategy with the latest installation of solar energy at a key operational site in Huntingdonshire.
Grafham Water is to become the latest part of Anglian Water’s carbon neutral journey as the installation of a solar array has been permitted on operational land at the site.
The site treats and distributes clean water across the region to hundreds of thousands of customers. Anglian Water has now been given the green light by Huntingdonshire District Council for a solar installation on operational land under their Permitted Development rights, to help power the site, by nature.
The water company highlights this renewable energy source will generate over a quarter of the energy used by the site over the course of a year and save around 4,500 tonnes of carbon annually, significantly reducing the site’s carbon footprint.
As of Monday 14th January, Plummer Car Park at Grafham Water will be temporarily closed to allow the project to begin.
Alternative car park facilities are available at:
Marlow Car Park, PE28 0BH
Mander Car Park, PE28 0BX
