The E.ON-supplied electricity will be used across the group's 300 sites, including stations, maintenance facilities and offices. It will also provide electricity for the Midland Metro in the West Midlands, National Express said.
"Moving to green electricity is part of our strategy to make National Express Group a low carbon business; we now have the first emission free light rail system in the UK and are looking at ways to apply this to our electric trains which include c2c, 'one' railway and the new East Coast franchise," Richard Bowker, National Express' chief executive said in a statement.
