The oldest cathedral in England to embrace this techonology

Gloucester Cathedral

As part of our ongoing work at the cathedral, we are proud to be part of this great endeavour to help reduce the cathedral’s annual energy costs by 25% by adorning it with 200 solar panels. The panels are part of an ambitious ten-year programme being undertaken by Project Pilgrim to help the building fulfil its role as a place of dynamic spiritual, civic and heritage activity at the centre of Gloucester. Located on the south side of the nave roof , the panels remain hidden from view. The energy will then be fed underneath the Lady Chapel to provide newley installed unfloor heating.
