The Electric Storage Company announces results of £4.5m pilot renewables project in Coleraine

A £4.5m renewables project has saved a combined £27,000 in energy costs for 60 properties concentrated around the Ballysally area of Coleraine in just one year. Part-funded by UKRI (£2.2m grant) with £2.3m match-funded, the scheme represents an average saving of 55% per property across the Project. Northern Ireland’s first smart electricity grid, ‘Project Girona’, was designed by The Electric Storage Company to demonstrate the potential benefits of a SLES (Smart Local Energy System). Bringing cheaper, smarter, greener electricity to homes and communities in Coleraine, The Electric Storage Company announced the findings of the 12-month study. Combining solar panels and battery storage technology, Project Girona has saved businesses, homeowners, tenants, and community groups an average of 55% in electricity costs. Further to the cost savings, Project Girona saved 40 tonnes of CO2 which equates to the same amount of C02 used by 19 family cars in a year.
