INSTALLATION OF UK'S LARGEST COMMUNITY-OWNED SOLAR PANEL ROOF BEGINS 

On the roof of Prodrive's headquarters in Banbury work has begun on installing what will be the largest community-owned roof-top solar-power station in the UK.

 

The installation is being carried out by the Low Carbon Hub and will see nearly 2500 solar panels generating up to 640 kW of clean electricity.  This will not only reduce Prodrive's carbon footprint by supplying nearly 40% of our electrciity needs, but will also generate around £240,000 of benefits for the local community over the next 20 years.

 

Facts:

 

- 2446 panels

- 636 kW max output

- 526,575 kWh annual output

- 39% of Prodrive's electricty needs

- 469 tonnes of C02 saved over 20 yrs
