It has been a great first year for our Solar array at Ackers Ski Centre. The panels which we own on the roof have generated 16,400 kilowatt hours of electricity in 2016. The centre uses a lot of electricity for heating and for running its ski lift, so a high proportion will have been used onsite. Any surplus has gone to neighbouring buildings. Eight tonnes of carbon has been displaced by not using grid electricity, also the Ackers pays us a low fixed price for its power, when otherwise prices are rising. They should be able to manage their finances and keep on providing outdoor opportunities for young people in Birmingham.
