Capital installs 659 solar panels in support of the fight against global warming

Posted 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 an extortionate amount of Co2 emissions, coming to just over sixty tonnes which is equivalent to near 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 it's 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 for other schools in the London area previously and was formed by residents as a local response to the problems of Climate Change in London.
