The new extension to the Ski Centre at Ackers Adventure, Sparkbrook now has a 19 kilowatt solar roof – our largest yet. Installed on 26 February 2016 they were preregistered at the FIT rate of 12 months before, so avoiding the cut to FIT rates introduced in January. We now have almost 50 kw of pv feeding into the Ackers Adventure buildings in total, and saving 23 tonnes off their annual carbon footprint. The site is well used by people of all ages, but especially youngsters who would not otherwise be able to afford to enjoy the range of outdoor activities available. We are saving money for the Ackers on all their building which have become solar powered since 2012.
