A wastewater treatment facility in Dunfermline is the latest Scottish Water facility to be fitted with onsite solar technology, as the water company progresses towards its net-zero carbon target for 2040. Dunfermline Wastewater Treatment Works has had a new 231kW solar PV system installed by Scottish Water’s commercial subsidiary Scottish Water Horizons, which invested £300,000 in the 784-panel system. The new system will generate 0.2GWhr of energy on an annual basis, equivalent to powering 55 homes for the year. The system will account for 10% of the electricity required to power the facility, which serves 81,000 customers in Dunfermline, Inverkeithing, Dalgety Bay, Crossgates, Rosyth and Kingseat.
