Lark Energy Completes 29kWp Installation on Council Offices
Lark Energy has installed a 29kWp solar photovoltaic (PV) system on the roof of South Holland District Council’s offices to help the local authority cut its carbon footprint.
Lark Energy installed a total of 126 photovoltaic panels on the roof of the council headquarters in Spalding, Lincolnshire which will produce approximately 24 MWh of electricity over the course of a year. This will enable the council to save a substantial amount from its electricity bills and significantly reduce its carbon emissions. The council will also earn income from generating renewable energy through the government’s Feed In Tariff scheme.
Lark Energy managed the project and oversaw the installation which took only three weeks to complete. The PV panels were manufactured by Hyundai, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of photovoltaic panels, and were supplied by Larkfleet Group company Eco Building Products. Most of the PV panels were installed on south facing roofs on the newest parts of the office buildings and will provide much of the electricity needs of the building.
Jonathan Selwyn, managing director of Lark Energy, commented: “Lark Energy is delighted to have worked on this high profile project. We have helped South Holland District Council reduce its carbon emissions and save money on fuel bills, helping it to take the lead in green energy generation.”
Councillor Howard Johnson, portfolio holder for the council’s property and assets, said: “We are delighted the panels have been installed. This is a win-win situation in terms of reducing our carbon emissions and for the council and residents of South Holland where we generate our own electricity.”
