Counting on …day 1.051

20th February 2023

 Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust began installing solar panels on land adjacent to the Castle Hill Hospital site in Cottingham in September 2021The project, which quickly became known as the ‘Field of Dreams’, saw 11,000 panels installed at a cost of £4.2m in order that the Trust could begin to lower its carbon footprint and generate its own electricity. Work was completed in February 2022, and …. the panels are now generating enough electricity to meet the complete daytime power needs of the entire Castle Hill site.”

The Shropshire Star reported: The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH), near Oswestry, has had 1,760 solar panels fitted along with its entire lighting upgraded to LEDs. It is estimated the trust is now saving over £217,000 annually, while also reducing carbon emissions by more than 809 tons of carbon per year as it pivots towards a net zero carbon future

A different world is possible!
