Capital installs 659 solar panels in support of the fight against global warmingPosted on: 17/06/2022
In April, Genfit installed a huge 300 kWp solar PV System on the roof of the Academy building. This included six hundred and fifty-nine solar panels estimated to produce around 263.08 MWh of energy every calendar year and save a huge amount of CO2 emissions, coming to just over sixty tonnes which is equivalent to nearly three thousand trees being planted.
The system will supply around 30% of the school’s current annual consumption and allow for a significant saving on electricity. It will also allow the school to generate its own electricity from the sun, not by burning polluting fossil fuels.
Greg George, Senior Director of Facilities & Resources says; “We are delighted to be making our mark in the fight against global warming."
Brent Pure Energy was the organisation managing this project. They are a not for profit Community Benefit Society who have worked on installing solar panels for other schools in the London area and was formed by residents as a local response to the problems of Climate Change in London.
