Keynsham Council Building & Town Hall
The Keynsham Council Building & Town Hall installation for Bath and North East Somerset Council is one of the largest Local Authority owned single-site PV installations in the UK. The system will power the new Town Hall and Council Building, saving more than £27,500 in energy bills in the first year as well as generating over £25,000 from the Feed-in Tariff.
“Not only will this benefit the environment, it will also save the Council and local taxpayer’s money which can be used to support essential frontline services. Councillor David Bellotti (LibDem, Lyncombe), the Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Resources.
The installation for Renishaw consists of two parts, the 241.25kWp roof array and the additional 49.89kWp brise soleil installation creating a total system capable of producing an annual output of 202,154kWh and reducing CO2 emissions by 136 tonnes per year. The additional brise soleil not only allowed Renishaw to increase their overall annual output but also helps to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and prove that solar can create great results aesthetically as well as financially and environmentally.
