Claimed to be the biggest community-owned solar roof is this installation at CTG, a Banbury-based site of UTC Aerospace Systems. It has an electrical output of 712 kW from its 2590 panels and will generate over 593 MWh a year. CO2 emissions of 5800 t will be avoided over the 20 years of the project’s lifetime.

The project is owned and developed by Oxford-based social enterprise Low Carbon Hub and was designed and installed by Solarcentury.

Tim Crisp, business manager at Low Carbon Hub, said, ‘What made this project work in the context of massive solar subsidy cuts was UTC Aerospace Systems CTG’s corporate goals for carbon reductions and their willingness to see the social and environment value of our community benefit model.’

Low Carbon Hub funded the upfront costs of the project through a mix of loans and a community energy share offer.
