Coventry City Council and solar partner Ineco Energy Limited  have this week begun installing over 5000 rooftop photovoltaic solar panels across 41 Coventry City Council public buildings. Phase 1, which is funded by Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) grants, will install solar PV at six Coventry schools before the new term as well as Coventry Central Library, a Council office building, and Windmill Road Cemetery.
Phase 2 will see solar PV being installed across 32 further Coventry City Council public buildings. This phase is funded through European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) grant funding.
The panels will generate 2.1 MWp  so could potentially generate 1,840 MWh of energy per year, assuming an average of 5 hours full generation per day throughout the year. This would save Coventry City Council up to £276,000 annually. Over the lifetime of the projects, this would be equivalent of planting 9,766 trees.

 MWp stands for MegaWatt peak. It is a measurement of the maximum output of power from a source such as solar or wind where the output may vary.
