Wrexham completes 5MW solar scheme
SOLAR POWER PORTAL - Sharp Solar has completed the installation of 3,000 solar arrays across Wrexham, in one of the largest council-led solar schemes in the UK. The £15 million project will see Wrexham become the country’s top authority for reducing carbon emissions and in the top ten percentile for the whole of the UK.
Around 5MW of capacity has been installed across 3,000 properties, including more than 150 individual flats. The council estimates that, those properties fitted with solar could realise annual savings of between £75-£250 per year on their electricity bills. The solar scheme is expected to help slash a mammoth 3,000 tonnes of CO2 off the borough’s annual carbon output.
