Trowbridge Civic Centre

The installation is expected to generate 43,100 kWh of energy and save about 22 metric tons of carbon dioxide on an annual basis.

 

The progress of the installation was tracked with photos and commentary in the section below and performance data is published below for the operational system.

 

Performance data

The charts available below show the daily power that has been generated in kWh for individual months (new monthly tabs and years will be added as more data is collected). Please note that the 'last' month may not show all the days untill all the data has been collected, which may not be until several days into the 'new' month.

Additional 'near real-time' inverter performance data is also available here (plus a special display screen can be shown here).
