Bird's eye view of CTG

Watch: This video, courtesy of Stone's Throw Media, shows an unused roof at UTC Aerospace Systems CTG in Banbury being transformed into a people's power station.

UTC Aerospace Systems CTG in Banbury is now host to Low Carbon Hub's latest community energy project -- and the UK's biggest community-owned solar roof. This is the 30th people's power station we have built in Oxfordshire, and the last of the 17 projects in our 2016 pipeline. 

The project in numbers:


solar panels were installed on CTG's roof by our wonderful installation partner, Solarcentury, over a period of 4 weeks

593,304 kWh 

of clean electricity will be generated by the project every year -- enough to power 150 homes a year 


of CTG's electricity needs will be met by the project, which will also feed clean energy into the national grid

5800 tonnes

of CO2 will be avoided (by CTG) over the project's 20-year lifetime


of Low Carbon Hub's surplus revenue from the project (£140,000 over 20 years) will be reinvested in local renewable energy projects, through Low Carbon Hub's Community Benefit Fund.

Let's do more of this, together!


We want to work with more local businesses to develop 'people's power stations' for community benefit. 

Contact Business Project Manager Tim Crisp to talk about a business project with Low Carbon Hub.
