A 30KWP SOLAR PV INSTALLATIONS AT THE GLOBE ACADEMY TO REDUCE ENERGY COSTS

Bright Spark in partnership with EcoSphere Renewables have just completed the installation of a Solar PV array at the Globe Primary Academy in Lancing, West Sussex.  

We installed a 30KWp Solar PV array on the main building with a second 30KWp array on the Children's Centre.  This linked with a future LED lighting upgrade should reduce the electricity from the grid by up to 75% and be self funding using a social enterprise operating rental.
