Solar Cuts National Ice Centre’s Energy Bills
One 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.
