Solar Roof at Cambridge University Press

In 2019 we built one of the UK's largest flat roof solar installations at our headquarters in Cambridge, UK. It reduces our carbon footprint in Cambridge by roughly 20\%. In sunny weather, the panels will provide almost 50\% of our electricity. The system will generate 438,144 Kwh per year. This is enough to power 117 households 2,705 refrigerators 3,983,127 kettle boils or 730,240 washing machine cycles Saving 232 tonnes of CO2 per year. It also reduces our electricity bill significantly. It’s the latest step in our Environmental Sustainability Strategy.
