Shining a Light on QMUL’s Solar Panels

Over the summer QMUL has been busy installing Solar Panels on the Mile End Library Roof. We know a lot of you are interested in finding out some of the facts and figure behind the panels so we thought we would shine a light on our new panels.

We installed 126 solar panels on the library roof, whilst we were up there we also relayed the roof, added insulation and put up a fence!

Library PV 1

The panels will generate 32.43 MWh of energy in their first year, this is enough to power 2.4 homes!

Library PV 2

The solar panels will also help us save 17.16 tonnes of CO2 a year contributing to our Carbon Management and Implementation Plan.

The panels are in ‘plug and play’ beds meaning if we ever need to we can simply unplug them and put them on another building.

Library PV 4

These panels are our second lot of PV panels with some on Fogg as well!
