The Challenge

As a public sector body daa is under obligation to reduce its energy usage by 30% by 2020.

Insights

The Solution

109.88kW solar PV array comprised of 268 photovoltaic panels covering 650m2 was installed and activated within 2 months.

Insights

The Technology

Solar photovoltaic panels trap the sun’s energy in semi conductor materials such as silicon, which contain a high concentration of electrons. Light excites the electrons, causing them to move and generate electricity.
