World : Britain’s largest gas distribution network goes solar

Cadent, Britain’s largest gas distribution network, has blazed a green trail with the launch of its first-ever solar array.

Located at an existing Cadent site in Brisley, North Norfolk, the solar farm comprises 388 solar panels and will help deliver savings on both carbon emissions and business costs.

Though it may not be the Mojave Desert the climate of North Norfolk is well suited to solar generation, as the PV panels don’t need direct sunlight to work and can still generate electricity on a cloudy day.

In addition to the significant environmental benefits, Cadent will also be saving on energy costs for the site
