university of cambridge offsite storage FACILITY (ULOs), Ely.

Photon Energy has installed 28.60kWp of solar PV for the University of Cambridge Library Storage Facility in Ely. The new storage facility will provide long-term storage for low use printed material acquired by the main University Library, affiliated libraries and other faculty and departmental libraries of the University.

The PV system consists of 104 x 275W Trina Solar PV modules. These modules have been installed on a ground based mounting system.

The mounting system is inspected and adjusted once every six months due to ground settling. This is carried out to ensure that the PV system remains in good and safe working conditions.

The PV system will generate 24,975 kWh/year which will save 12.8 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.
