Photon install 165.55 kWp PV system at leisure facility

Photon Energy has recently commissioned a 165.55 kWp rooftop solar PV system for Hart District Council’s new flagship Hart Leisure Centre.

The PV system comprises 602 Trina mono-crystalline black 275W PV modules, has a total installed capacity of 165.55 kWp and is expected to generate around 152,390 kWh of energy per annum.

Abu Luswata, Senior Engineer at Photon Energy said “We’re very proud to have been selected by Willmott Dixon to be involved with this high-profile project that will provide such great benefits to the local community.”

During the construction of Hart Leisure Centre, as with all their projects, Willmott Dixon ensured that the local economy benefitted. Approximately 85% of suppliers were SME businesses and 75% of the labour was sourced from within 40 miles of the site.

The PV panels are on full view to the public ensuring a raised awareness of Hart District Council’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions.

Brian Woodfood, Services Manager at Willmott Dixon said: “It was a pleasure to work with Photon Energy, their project managers and site team were very professional throughout the design and installation process. We’re very happy with the quality of the end result and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again in the future”.
