In July 2020, Spirit installed a huge 93.5kWp solar PV system at the West Reservoir outdoor swimming complex in Hackney.
The project is part of a local scheme, Hackney Light and Power, which aims to make the London borough net zero carbon by 2040. Alongside green energy rollouts like the system at West Reservoir, the council plans to install EV chargepoints, support renewable heating and fit home energy efficiency measures.
The solar PV system we installed will generate 77,534 kWh of clean energy a year, saving 40.2 tonnes of CO2. We also fitted a display screen at the venue, so visitors can see how much power the panels are generating and the environmental impact in real time.
