Nationwide Solar has completed a major contract to install solar panels on the roof of one of a Nottinghamshire council’s largest leisure centres.
Tankersley-based Nationwide’s installation on Gedling Council’s Richard Herrod Centre is expected to generate enough electricity to pay for itself in 12 years.
The project is the council’s fifth investment in solar power.
Nationwide Solar’s managing director Russ Cowan said: “The Richard Herron centre was the perfect choice for solar PV, as it will be able to take advantage of a large amount of free electricity generated from the sun during the day when the centre is at its busiest. It is great to be able to help the council to reap the benefits of generating an income from their roofs.”
Nationwide Solar is the largest installer of solar PV operating in the social housing sector in the UK and is a Microgeneration Certification Scheme accredited installer.
