PV array planned for roof of Highcross shopping centre in Leicester
Hammerson has lodged an application with Leicester City Council to install 881 photo-voltaic panels on four locations on the roof of the Highcross shopping centre. The landlord has already added solar panels to its Westquay site in Southampton and at Victoria Gate in Leeds.
The application says: “The system has been designed the generation of renewable energy at the site. It’s estimated 100 per cent of the energy generated will be used within the shopping centre.”
