The annual power consumption at this location is 37450 kWh/y (2018). In 2020, 25.4 kW Solar panels were installed. It is estimated that the new panels will receive 1499 hours of sunshine per year resulting in 38075 kWh/y of energy produced. This will reduce the annual CO2 emissions by 15 tonnes per year!
