New panels bring increased generation for 2016 – 01/11/16

Between January and October 2016 we generated a fraction under 450,000 kilowatt hours compared to 245,000 kilowatt hours in 2015, an 83% increase. However the reason for this was the additional panels installed in late 2015 and early 2016 at George Abbot School, Boxgrove Primary School, Beacon School and Jubilee High School at Spelthorne. Like for like generation was actually down 3% on 2015 due to poor weather conditions, particularly in June.

Sadly, our proposals to install an array at Green Oak School, a Church of England primary school, have not been successful. While the Guildford Diocese has been very supportive the roof structure has proved to be unsuitable, which is a shame and the Co-op members working on this are very disappointed with this outcome.
