Metropolitan Police reaping the Solar rewards

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has generated £22,000 from solar installations across police buildings at Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham, Gravesend, Deptford, Bromley and Sutton.

The payments were made under the feed-in tariff scheme (FIT) for electricity generated by these installations from December 2011 to September 2012.

Neil Grange, Head of Carbon Management for the Met, said: “We are always looking at ways to become more sustainable and this scheme has the added bonus that we are able to use our roof space and generate an income from Solar energy.

“The Met is a huge organisation and has a duty to reduce its carbon footprint as much as possible.  We are working on a range of projects to that end.”

All FIT eligible Solar PV installations registered after March 2012 are guaranteed the contracted feed in tariff for 20 years.
