Norfolk Environmental Waste Services (NEWS) Materials Recovery Facility

Client: Norse Commercial Services
Services: Feasibility and design
Project value: £298,000

This waste recovery plant at Costessey in Norfolk made energy history when our installation of around 700 square metres of solar panels onto the roof of the building became by far the biggest of its kind in the county at the time.

Key savings

• Over the 25 year life of the installation the facility expects to save at least £116,000 in electricity costs and generate more than £623,000 income from feed-in tariffs.
• We predict that the installation will have paid for itself by 2025
