Drax Power Station will today signal the end of 2020 by projecting a Happy New Year message onto one of its 12 cooling towers.
The projection coincides with sustainable biomass generation in the UK hitting a new record, generating 3.6 GW during yesterday’s peak electricity demand, beating the previous record of 3.54 GW, set on 9th of December.
The message will be projected from 5pm – 2am today and 5pm – 10pm on New Year’s Day.
