The solar PV installation at Capital City Academy has been running since June 17 and they will be reaping the benefits of reduced electricity bills in the region of £15,000 p.a. There are still some details to be sorted out like a display system in reception to show solar data, etc. and an export power purchase agreement. After that we'll carry on with our next project or two. Possibilities are Preston Manor school Wembley, Gladstone Park school and Willesden sports centre. Ideally, we go for community sites with large roof areas and daytime use, such as schools, offices, community sports or medical centres. The other key factor is to find an on-site enthusiast for renewables, a 'local champion' who can help persuade the 'powers that be' that solar PV is a good way to combat climate change and reduce energy bills
