Attercliffe Police Station

Project commissioned: April, 2015

Sheffield Renewables have delivered their third community-owned renewable energy scheme, a 50kW solar array panel at Attercliffe police station.

This project is part of wider efforts by South Yorkshire Police to increase its sustainability, which will also help to reduce energy costs.

A locally based community share offer, sourced through Sheffield Renewables, paid for the panels which cost £61,500, and Attercliffe Police Station will now benefit from a 20% reduction on their energy bills and an annual saving of 16.5 tonnes of CO₂.

““It is important that we all do our bit to reduce the carbon footprint. South Yorkshire Police have now moved to providing sustainable energy at a number of its police stations, which is going a long way to reducing the Force’s overall carbon footprint. With the cost effectiveness of these solar panels, it will also contribute to savings. I am very supportive of the initiative.”

, South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner visited the scheme during construction.

“This project excellently demonstrates how community energy groups can work with larger organisations, to the benefit of the local and wider community, not only reducing carbon emissions but also offering a source of ethical investment for locals, and cost savings for our local Police force.”

Julia Carrell, Director at Sheffield Renewables.
