*UWE may have largest single roof-mounted PV array at a UK university but it can go further as this is only powering 50% of the Robotics Laboratory and University Enterprise Zone Building. What about all the other UWE owned buildings?

*UWE Bristol spends circa £3m/year on electricity, surely it would be beneficial to produce more themselves so money can be spent elsewhere for the benefit of us (students).

*And one of UWE's 2020 targets is for the University to be a Carbon Neutral campus by 2040, so investing in solar/PV is one way to help reach this target.
