Sundog Energy, one of the UK“s leading providers of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, has announced that it has been awarded the GBP 1.3 million contract to provide a huge solar system on the roof of Kings Cross Station in London. The project, which will be completed over a 12-month period, will be one of the biggest solar PV systems in the UK at 240kWp (kilowatt peak) capacity, and will generate around 175,000 kWh (kilowatt hours or units) of electricity per year. The solar PV cells are integrated into 1,392 glass laminate units that will form part of the new glass roofing structure of approximately 2,300 sq.m. over the platforms and concourses. Sundog Energy“s managing director, Martin Cotterell, said, “Winning the Kings Cross Station contract is a great development for Sundog that reflects our expertise and reputation within this highly specialized industry. This project is also a fantastic showcase for solar PV technology. How many millions of people use Kings Cross each year, who cannot fail to see the iconic solar cells at work above their heads?”
