Three years of sunshine

This month sees the third anniversary of the Co-op’s one-of-a-kind solar Photovoltaic (PV) installation at their Locale store in Grouville. The installation, undertaken by Sun Works CI Ltd, is very much part of the ‘Internet of Things’ and a quick glance at the data produced shows a surprising consistency of electricity production year on year. The project, which was completed in collaboration with Axis Mason architects and Rok Construction Ltd, saw an ‘in-roof’ Solar PV design installed at the new Co-operative Locale store in Grouville in early 2015. Based on the normal tariff the supermarket has generated and offset about £2800 worth of electricity each year. To put into context, this equivalent power generation would run approximately five Jersey homes per year. We hope this sort of thing gets more popular across the island. Tesla roof anyone?!
