Scottish Water has completed another solar site, as it continues its push to reach net zero by 2040. Its Inverness Water Treatment Works, by Loch Ashie, now has 1,300 solar panels, thanks to a £450,000 investment by the utility. The panels are expected to provide a third of the energy needed for the site, which is located just five miles south-west of the Highland Capital. This is the third largest installation by Scottish Water Horizons, the publicly-owned water company’s commercial subsidiary created to invest in renewable technologies. Project manager Ian Piggott said that harnessing solar energy was just one of many ways the company can tackle climate change and contribute to Scottish Water’s net zero target.
