The 38MW Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant is targeted to enter commercial operation in 2014. It will generate enough electricity to power 65,000 homes using sustainable fuel sources, saving 150,000 tonnes of CO2 per annum.

As well as generating electricity, the surplus heat generated by the plant will be harnessed and used for heating Sleaford’s public swimming pool and indoor bowling centre, the town’s football club and, subject to planning consent, provide surplus heat to North Kesteven District Council’s office in the town. By using the surplus heat, the plant’s efficiency is increased.

The plant is a multi-million pound investment for the local economy, creating up to 250 jobs during construction and 80 during commercial operation.
