Vodafone signs ten-year deal for solar farms

Vodafone has signed ten-year deal for three new solar farms in Lincolnshire, Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire.

Vodafone will purchase a significant proportion of the electricity output from the solar farms, securing their development and bringing additional renewable power provision to the UK grid. Energy generation is expected to begin by the end of 2022.

The deal, between Vodafone, Centrica as the power supplier, and Mytilineos’ Renewables & Storage Development Business Unit as the generator, supports the Government’s ambition to focus on home-grown, clean and more affordable energy and so boost long-term energy independence and security.

Power Purchase Agreements are key to Vodafone’s renewable energy procurement strategy. This is the second such agreement, and follows the development of two onshore wind farms, in Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire, which together supply 75GWh of renewable electricity every year. Combined, these assets will provide more than 20 per cent of Vodafone UK’s annual energy requirement and guarantee it access to long-term, high-quality renewable electricity supplies.
