Electricity and gas supplier Centrica has opened its first UK solar farm in Wiltshire under the company’s plans to build out a portfolio of flexible energy assets.

Power generation is now underway at Codford Solar Farm near Warminster. Made up of 33,000 panels, the project has a total capacity of 18MW and should produce 19GWh of green electricity every year, enough to power some 4,850 homes.

In late 2021, Centrica announced ambitions to deliver 900MW of low carbon assets by 2026 and the company is currently building battery storage projects.
