SCC has installed solar panels on its data center in Birmingham, it has announced. Its flagship CV1 facility will have a 737kWp roof-mounted solar-PV system attached that will cover just over five percent of the facility's total energy needs. This new development has been made possible in partnership with renewable energy firm Conrad Energy. 

Commenting on the development, Paul Southall, head of sustainability and projects at SCC, said: "We are thrilled to be partnering with Conrad and successfully installed solar panels at our CV1 data center. Using renewable energy to power our operations is an important step forward in our ongoing sustainability efforts. This development will not only benefit SCC but also the environment and the wider community.

Conrad reportedly owns and operates more than 60 sites across the UK. It hosts 700MW of generation capacity and over 150MW of battery storage.
