Bus station goes solar with £20,000 panel installation

22 May 2012 – Buchanan Bus Station in Scotland has been given a £20,000 solar panel system as part of owner Strathclyde Partnership for Transport’s (SPT) commitment to reduce carbon emissions and energy costs.


The 10kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system is expected to generate approximately 8,000kWh of electricity saving 4.6 tonnes of CO2 annually. As well as generating free electricity, SPT will receive payments from the UK government’s Feed-In Tariff, which could amount to more than 5,000 GBP a year in extra revenue.
