Solar programme

Yorkshire Water has a solar programme to install 90 MW of power over 150 sites by 2030. This is the equivalent of producing enough power for over 21,000 houses.


The programme has been designed to ensure solar panels are installed to meet the demand of the site so maintain maximum efficiency and maximise carbon benefit. The scheme will be delivered in 3 phases of 30 MW. The total project could save up to 15 thousand tonnes CO2e per year by 2030. The project has great financial benefits as the use of long-term partnerships mean the unit costs of electricity to Yorkshire Water will be reduced and ensure the capital costs are paid for.

The land for the project has been carefully selected to ensure land is released without affecting other long-term requirements.

The project will contribute greatly to Yorkshire Waters net zero ambition.
