E.ON is helping a college in Cambridge save over £16,000 a year1


E.ON signed a contract with Hills Road College in Cambridge, to install a 50kWp photovoltaic system onto the roof of the science building and related display monitoring equipment.

The completion of the project demonstrates E.ON’s strength in delivering carbon reduction schemes, helping customers to minimise energy costs and improve efficiency by delivering the most effective and cost-efficient technology – in this case, solar PV.

The benefits

Generating energy using solar panels is a great way to reduce energy bills and the impact on the environment.

The benefits of this project include:

  • Estimated electricity savings of £16,664 per year
  • The college is generating its own electricity using energy from the sun
  • Estimated to reduce carbon emissions by over 23 tonnes per annum
  • Remote meter reading that keeps track of how much energy is being generated and remotely monitors the systems performance
  • Low maintenance

1 Based on a 50kWp array, electricity generation estimated to be around 43Mwhrs of the schools electricity consumption. Assuming an electricity import price of 13.3p/kWh.
2 Based on a 50kWp PV system, generating an estimated 39,362kWh per year, which equates to annual carbon saving of 22,357 tonnes of CO2
