Our second installation was at the Knowle West Media Centre. This arts centre and charity in South Bristol supports people to make positive changes in their lives using technology and the arts. The centre has received support from our Megawatt Community fund to provide energy advice to the local community, and this has been a great success.
The centre uses the vast majority of the power from our solar panels on site, and this has led to large energy bill savings.
The Knowle West team can monitor the solar panel’s performance from a live data screen behind the reception desk. They are always looking at other ways to make their building greener too – a biomass boiler and rainwater harvesting system have already been installed.
