Solar Installation to Power NSG Group’s European Technical Centre

Solar installation to power NSG Group’s European Technical Centre

NSG Group and Lightsource BP officially opened the new 2.29MWp solar installation on 4 July. The project, which is fully funded by Lightsource BP, is hard-wired into the private electricity network of NSG Group’s European Technical Centre in Lathom, UK. It is anticipated to provide around 30 per cent of the site’s annual electricity demand and reduce carbon emissions by 848 tonnes per year.

The project is especially significant for NSG Group as the installation showcases solar modules from First Solar, one of NSG Group’s largest global customers. The glass within the solar modules was manufactured by NSG Group and the research and development for the glass was conducted at the European Technical Centre itself.
