Lightsource Renewable Energy was founded in 2010 and has achieved an unrivalled track record in the installation of both ground mount and rooftop solar projects – deploying more than £2.4billion of solar assets and managing an operational portfolio of more than 1.7 Gigawatts (GW)
Lightsource finances, develops, constructs and operates utility scale solar parks and also supplies renewable power at a discounted rate direct to major energy users (MEUs). The company has launched the ambitious floating solar project – which provides a source of clean, renewable energy to Thames Water’s Hampton Water Treatment works via a private-wire power purchase agreement (PPA).
Lightsource is leading the solar revolution after completing further PPA projects with Northumbrian Water, Bentley Motors, AmeyCespa and Belfast International Airport – now home to Ireland’s first solar farm.
A private-wire PPA can help businesses reduce exposure to energy market volatility and creates excellent CSR opportunities by helping businesses meet energy and carbon reduction targets. With sustainability now a key requirement in many tendering processes, businesses large and small are looking to switch to renewable energy to give them a competitive edge.
A British domiciled company, it has more than 300 staff based at offices in London, Bath, Belfast and Dublin. To find out more, visit www.lightsource-re.co.uk
