Cobridge Primary Care Centre in Stoke has had solar panels installed as part of a £14 million development. The centre was designed by healthcare specialists ‘One Creative Environments,’ which designed the buildings to reflect the local urban landscape as well as being sympathetic to the Victorian Christ Church, situated nearby.

The development has been designed specifically to minimise its impact on the environment around it, benefiting from extensive landscaping and planting to provide additional green environmental space for Stoke.

Solar contractor Myriad CEG was approached to help the centre meet the Energy Performance Certificate requirements of the building by installing solar PV. The company designed arrays to cover 284m2 of PV on block A and 150m2 of PV on block B. The two arrays combined provide a total capacity of 66.12kWp. It is estimated that the systems will produce 50,833kWh per year, saving 27.6 tonnes of CO2 in the process.
