Nationwide Solar secures new contract to supply solar PV

Nationwide Solar has won a new contract with Gedling Borough Council to supply solar PV panels, which will provide a renewable source of energy for one of its largest leisure centres.

The Richard Herrod Centre, based in Carlton in Nottinghamshire is now benefiting from a 79 kW solar PV system, which is expected to yield 66,500 Kw/h per annum of electricity. 

This will mean significant savings for the centre on its energy bills.

The move is Gedling Borough Council’s fifth investment in solar PV, which has recently included fitting two 7 kW systems to the Civic Centre at Arnot Hill Park in Arnold and two 9 kW systems have been installed by Nationwide Solar to the adjacent Jubilee House buildings.

Nationwide Solar managing director Russ Cowan said: “Gedling Borough Council has recognised how solar panels represent a very good investment in the future. 

“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. I

“t is great to be able to help the council to reap the benefits of generating an income from their roofs.”
