Amount of energy, Kilowatt Hours (Kwh), generated by solar panels at Council owned premises
Shropshire Council currently has 41 solar arrays (28 sites) where energy is generated. From the first installation in 2012 a total of 5,377,557 kWh of energy has been generated, saving just under 3000 tonnes CO2.
During quarter 1, a total of 125,839 kWh of energy was generated. This has a carbon saving of 60,586 kg CO2 and is equivalent to the planting of 133 trees (assuming each tree absorbs 455kg CO2 over its 40 year lifespan).
