nLighten UK has completed a solar power installation on the 4,500 sqm rooftop of its Milton Keynes data centre.

The upgrade has seen the installation of over 1,000 solar panels on the rooftop, with predicted annual CO2 emissions savings of over  90 tonnes, according to the company.

The panels will provide a capacity of up to 478 kW, with nLighten estimating that the solar produced energy will meet the power requirements of the entire building during certain periods of the day in the summer months.

“At nLighten, the energy transition and assisting a sustainable digital economy is at the core of our DNA. We are proud to be continuing on our journey to create the next step for the data centre industry and align edge data centres with the sustainable transition,” said John Hall, nLighten UK’s Managing Director.
