As construction of Lightsource’s flagship floating solar project nears completion, global interest in the ambitious project continues to gather momentum.
The project, Europe’s largest floating solar installation, was featured in today’s top 10 most read stories on the BBC News website.
More than 23,000 solar photovoltaic panels are being floated on the surface of the Queen Elizabeth II reservoir, near Walton-on-Thames, in Surrey.
Energy from the 6.3MW will be used to part power the nearby water treatment works.
The floating array is due for connection this month (March) and we’ll keep you updated with all the latest news right here on our website. Stay tuned to our page for more images and videos of this exciting project!
