Power generation has commenced at Codford Solar Farm, marking a significant milestone in Centrica's endeavor to build a portfolio of flexible energy assets. Construction at the Wiltshire site began in April 2022, following Centrica Business Solutions' acquisition of the necessary consent in 2021. The solar farm comprises 33,000 panels, boasting a total capacity of 18MW and an annual green electricity production of 19GWh. Such an impressive output is sufficient to power approximately 4,850 homes, illuminating the path to a cleaner future.Chris O'Shea, CEO of Centrica, exudes delight as the company resumes asset construction, emphasizing its unwavering focus on clean electricity generation and storage. Centrica, as a uniquely integrated energy company, stands at the forefront of driving and benefiting from the energy transition. The solar farm project aligns seamlessly with Centrica's commitment to sustainability, empowering the company to make significant strides in reducing its carbon footprint.The collaboration between Centrica and Vodafone not only brings additional renewable power to the UK grid but also supports the UK government's ambitious goal of promoting home-grown renewable energy for long-term energy independence and security. With its target of delivering 900MW of low carbon assets by 2026, Centrica is actively contributing to the nation's green energy revolution. The company is concurrently developing battery storage projects and maintaining a multi-gigawatt pipeline of projects, solidifying its position as a key player in the European energy market.Vodafone's commitment to sustainability is underscored by its purchase of 50% of the electricity output from Codford Solar Farm. By supporting the development of this renewable energy initiative, Vodafone plays a vital role in bolstering the UK's transition to clean energy sources. With existing agreements in place, Vodafone anticipates that approximately 47% of its annual energy requirement will be met by UK-based renewable power sources by 2025. This significant shift towards renewable energy contributes not only to Vodafone's net-zero ambitions but also to the overall renewable power provision in the UK.
