Hackney unveils new solar scheme at watersports centre

West Reservoir Centre will now be able to generate all the power it needs from solar panels on its roof

Solar panels have been installed at the watersports and conference venue West Reservoir Centre, through a new solar panel scheme launched by Hackney Council.

The facility will now be able to generate all the power it needs from the solar panels on its roof and any excess power generated will be fed back into the grid.

The initiative supports the local authority's commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions across all its functions by 2040 and a 45% reduction on 2010 levels by 2030.
