A solar farm at Brinsbury College has gone live.

The campus is expecting to use around 95% of the energy generated by the 640 photovoltaic (PV) panels, which have been installed by SAS Energy of Edenbridge, Kent, working with Chichester-based energy consultants, Downland Utilities Ltd. Unused generation will be exported onto the electricity grid.

It’s also predicted the solar farm will reduce the college’s CO2 emissions by around 65,000kg each year.

Andrew Green, Chief Executive of the Chichester College Group, said: “As a college group, we are committed to improving our carbon footprint.

“This solar farm at Brinsbury will provide a renewable energy supply to the campus, which is a huge step towards to our goal of creating more sustainable college campuses.”
