UK energy manageOne thousand solar panels installed 12 months ago on the roof of the National Ice Centre and Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, United Kingdom, have saved at least $22,800 on energy bills, and the panels have earned over $36,000 in Feed-in Tariff payments.

The 250 kW system installed by EvoEnergy has generated 224,000 kWh of electricity since it’s completion at the end of September last year – 10 percent more than the forecasted 202,000 kWh. The arena consumes an average of 12,000 kWh per day.
