Despite what appears to be a lack of consultation or PR from Thames Water, they have installed quite a large array of solar panels at their East Ilsley sewage works. A commendable feat and something that Thames Water think will return more to the grid that the site consumes. Thames Water describe the array as 50KW. This is a good example of how industrial sites can be used to sustainably benefit our local communities. It's a shame that the subsidy for renewable power systems like this is being dropped by the current government – something that I would look to overturn.
