Mypower shine to win another Solar energy award

Mypower scooped another award at the Solar Power Portal awards ceremony which was attended by some 400 industry professionals.

Hosted by TV presenter and renewables advocate Robert Llewellyn, the awards took place at the Hilton Metropole NEC in Birmingham.

Mypower took home the sought after Commercial Rooftop Solar PV Project of the Year Award for their installation at Gloucester Cathedral. The judges remarked that Mypower “had gone to great lengths” to deliver the very best solar PV project fit for a cathedral. 150 solar panels were installed by Mypower on the roof of the 1,000 year old Grade 1 listed Gloucester Cathedral, the oldest building of its kind to have solar installed. The panels will generate 29,000 kWh of electricity/year, supplying 25% of the buildings demand, saving £190,000 over 25 years and 16 tonnes of CO2/year.

Ben Harrison who heads up Mypower said “Our solar installation at Gloucester Cathedral has been our biggest challenge by far. Working with such a famous and ancient building and creating a renewable energy solution which can be replicated for other listed buildings has been an honour. Our work has now become a part of the buildings history which goes back to Norman times.”

This Solar Power Portal award builds on our other successes this year at the British Renewable Energy awards and the South West Regional Energy Efficiency Awards.
