The Langage solar farm consists of more than 21,000 solar panels and has been built on a 12 hectares (30 acres) site next to the Langage Energy Centre, a 910MW gas-fired power station also developed by Carlton Power and one of the most efficient power stations in the world. The £15m Langage Solar Farm was constructed over a three month period by Gehrlicher Solar UK Limited.
Newcastle City Library was completely rebuilt as part of a £40.2m Private Finance Initiative scheme. The old building was closed in September 2006 and later demolished. The previous 1960s structure was unsuited to modern needs, so Newcastle City Council wanted to build a replacement. It found a private finance initiative (PFI) the only viable route. The six-storey library opened in February 2009 and houses 400,000 volumes on 13km of shelving in 8,300m2 of floor space. It also offers creche facilities, a 180-seat performance space, wi-fi internet access, a cafe and meeting rooms for community groups. All books, CDs and DVDs can be self-issued by customers.
