Two West Midlands hospitals install solar

The Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust (HEFT) has partnered with renewable energy installer, Ecolution, to install solar PV arrays at Solihull Hospital and Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham.

The electricity for both hospitals is generated from their two 250kWp roof-mounted arrays.

HEFT identified solar as a means of saving energy, cutting costs and reducing the hospitals’ carbon footprints.

Ecolution chose black-framed Hyundai 250W modules, using over 2,000 panels across 28 roofs – all with varying pitch, orientation, height and covering.

The installations were completed in less than six months, in time for the hospitals deadline of March 2014.

The arrays are predicted to deliver over £2 million in associated savings and feed-in tariff payments over the next 20 years.
