Site overview

Low Carbon is helping to fund the installation of solar panels at the National Museum of Bermuda (NMB) in the Royal Naval Dockyard. The installation is expected to generate more than 93,600kWh of clean energy per year, contributing to a significant portion of the museum’s energy consumption needs and saving 43 tonnes of CO2 per year. The project will not only contribute to the local economy but it will leave an important legacy to the museum and island in the ongoing battle to mitigate the negative effects of climate change. The primary aim of the project is to help offset the carbon footprint generated by the Land Rover BAR sailing team whilst competing in Bermuda during the America’s Cup 2017. Low Carbon, as the official renewable energy partner to Land Rover BAR, has delivered more than 236kW of solar energy projects.
