Cambridge Council adopts Solar PV on public buildings

Landmark buildings in Cambridge are soon to be recognized for their solar generating power as the council looks to cash in on the Government’s feed-in tariff scheme. By installing solar panels on buildings such as the Corn Exchange and on the roofs of Parkside pools the £430,000 project will also reduce the area’s carbon footprint.

Combining the feed-in tariff payments with funds gathered by selling surplus energy back to the national grid, the scheme is expected to bring in £1 million. It is also hoped the city council’s carbon footprint will be reduced by 1,500 tonnes.

Cllr Sian Reid, the council leader said, “As a council we are keen to make the most of new Government initiatives, and I’m delighted that we are making this investment in reducing our fuel bills and our carbon footprint.

This is a clear indication of the benefit of Solar PV in Cambridge – for more details on how you could benefit from Solar Photovoltaics in Cambridge and the surrounding villages get in touch.
