Blackfriars station to host London’s largest solar array

The Guardian Newspaper report the following:

Work on the world’s largest solar bridge formally begins today as the first of more than 4,400 solar panels are installed above the new Blackfriars station platform.

The historic London site is undergoing a multi-million pound refit, which includes extending the platform along Blackfriars Bridge, a structure built in 1886.

When complete in 2012, the Victorian bridge will play host to some 6,000 square metres of photovoltaic (PV) panels, making it London’s largest solar array.

This is fantastic news, a real step in the right direction!
