Salisbury Cathedral has installed 93 solar panels on its roof in a bid to become carbon-neutral in the next decade. The panels will provide 33,708 kilowatt hours of clean energy to Salisbury Cathedral and reduce its carbon footprint by 11,764kg per year.
The installation of the panels, which will produce a total of 37kw of energy, is another step towards the cathedral’s aim of being carbon neutral by 2030. The cathedral is considering other environmental initiatives include drought-proofing, using green tariff energy and installing LED lighting. The efforts form are part of a wider mission by the Church of England to offset its carbon emissions by the end of the decade.
