BP Solar Continues UK Installations

September 19, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] Woking Borough Council is scheduled to complete the installation of a further four solar electricity systems this month increasing the amount of solar power in the Surrey town to 428 kW – enough power to run 430 homes or approx. 7,000 60-watt light bulbs. BP Solar modules are being installed on sheltered accommodation in Woking, including Wesco Court, which was ironically the site of Woking’s first coal fired power station. Woking were the first council in the UK to install large scale solar electricity integrated with a CHP on an active private wire system providing a reverse winter/summer electricity profile with the potential to achieve 100 percent sustainability in electricity. Based on its installation to-date the town saves around 6 tons CO2 per year.
