Lincolnshire Police

Project Overview

Lincolnshire Police is a constabulary working under the government’s legislation to protect the Lincolnshire area. They set to empower and involve communities working to prevent and reduce harm. Lincolnshire Police have a set of clear internal values and behaviors which support all their policing services. The values extend not only to societal but also environmental with a serious interest in reducing CO2 emissions and generating renewable solar energy across their sites.

Having already invested in electric cars into their service fleet, Lincolnshire Police chose Custom Solar to conduct multiple installations across various different sites in Lincolnshire including Boston, Spalding, Skegness, Louth, Sleaford, Gainsborough, and the HQ in Lincoln. There were challenging elements to the installations including sites usage of diesel-powered generators which meant that the team installed contactors to disconnect the solar in the event of a power outage, and they automatically reconnect when grid power returns.

The project was completed in December 2020 and has resulted in the installation of a 275.76 kWp development. The installation totaled 664 solar modules across multiple sites and culminated in a generation of 238,371 kWh (kilowatt-hours) of energy resulting in 107 tonnes of CO2 being reduced annually.
