Powering up St Ives Park & Ride

Share on

Bouygues Energies & Services and Cambridgeshire County Council are developing an energy project that will transform St Ives Park & Ride into a renewable energy generator.

The project will see solar panels installed on carports above the two central zones of car parking spaces. These panels will generate renewable electricity, powering not only the site, but also electric vehicle charge points and allow the sale of power to local businesses. The site will benefit from new energy efficient lighting and enhanced CCTV, as well as the creation of a wildlife area.
