A new solar farm with over 2,000 panels has opened.

Investment company Schroders unveiled its extensive solar farm installation at its Langhurst Wood Road Horsham campus.

The farm, which has 2,606 solar panels, will generate 1.13MWh a year of electricity, which is the equivalent of approximately 25 per cent of the site's annual electricity consumption.

A total of 58 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations have also been installed at the site to support employees switching to hybrid and EVs.

The installation of the farm was formally launched by Dame Elizabeth Corley, chairwoman of the Schroders Group.

She said: "The Horsham solar project offers us a tangible picture of our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and our belief in being a catalyst for change.

"Through initiatives like this, we are actively working towards a net-zero, nature-positive operating model. I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved, and I look forward to witnessing our continued impact.”

The company will also be actively finding other ways to help the environment such as installing bat and bird boxes.
