Centrica Business Solutions has been onboarded to steer the deliver of the British Army’s first solar farm, which will be located at Army’s Defence School of Transport (DST) in Leconfield, Yorkshire.
Construction started on the 2.3MW solar farm earlier this year, with more than 4,000 solar panels set to provide the school with one third of its electricity needs.
It forms part of “Project Prometheus”, which will see three further solar farm pilots introduced at Duke of Gloucester Barracks, South Cerney, Gloucestershire; Rock Barracks, Suffolk; and Baker Barracks on Thorney Island, Sussex. These projects are scheduled for delivery later this year, with a further 80 solar farms to be introduced across the Army’s estate in the next seven years.
