A farm in the Peterborough area has just invested £1 million creating a huge roof mounted solar panel system in a bid to cut energy costs.
Alan Bartlett and Sons (Chatteris) Limited has commissioned the installation of more than 4,000 solar photovoltaic panels that are expected to generate up to 1.2 Megawatts of on-site energy.
Andrew Foster, the firm’s finance director, said: “The solar panel installation at the Chatteris factory is a significant investment for the company.
“The installation will achieve material cost savings for the business and at the same time greatly contribute to our carbon footprint reduction ambitions.”
