Lark Energy Brings Solar Power to the Greyhounds
Lark Energy has completed work on a large PV installation on the roof of Peterborough Greyhound Stadium. The stadium, located at Fengate in Peterborough, will have 180 photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of the viewing stands and restaurant. The 41.4 kWp system will have an estimated total energy production of 35.54 MWh per year.
In a full year of operation, the panels could save the stadium up to £3,500 from its electricity bills and also generate significant additional income in the form of Feed in Tariff payments from the stadium’s energy supplier.The PV panels being used are manufactured by Hyundai, one of the world's largest manufacturers, and are supplied by Larkfleet Group company Eco Building Products.
Jonathan Selwyn, managing director of Lark Energy, commented: “As a local company, we are delighted to be helping the owners of such an important visitor attraction in Peterborough reduce its carbon footprint, save money and achieve a good return on investment. At the same time it will help demonstrate to the Greyhound Stadium’s thousands of customers the benefits of renewable energy.”
Joint chief executive Richard Perkins, from Peterborough Greyhound Stadium, said: “Both my business partner, Robert Perkins, and I are delighted to be undertaking this exciting project with the assistance, advice and expertise of the Larkfleet Group. We both feel that PV energy is the future, and with over 150,000 customers annuallyattending the stadium we look forward to sharing this vision with them in partnership with Hyundai and the Larkfleet Group.”
