M&S moves out of the sun

Marks & Spencer has cancelled its plans for a solar array at its Bradford distribution centre in Yorkshire because the government has cut Feed-in Tariffs.

The government announced it would cut subsidies for larger green energy schemes over 50kW from 1st August as part of its spending review.

Marks & Spencer had planned to fit photo voltaic panels on the warehouse roof to provide power for its own needs and to sell surplus to the National Grid.

Despite this set back the 1.1 million sq ft Bradford facility remains carbon neutral.
