Solar project completed in Hastings

12 April 2019

Solar panels have been installed on a roof of the Ore campus of East Sussex College in Hastings. The project will generate 237,500 kWh of energy a year, enough to power 72% of the college’s electricity demand.

The impressive array was funded by community shares from local residents and is set to generate a community fund of nearly £100,000 over 25 years. The project is a partnership between Energise Sussex Coast, Brighton Energy Coop and East Sussex College, and is part of the 1066 Local Energy Campaign.
