South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum goes green!

Visitors to the museum over the past month may have noticed our newest addition to the museum, and it’s not an aircraft!


We are pleased to say that the museum has taken steps towards reducing our carbon footprint with the installation of Solar Panels to the Workshop roof, along with a range of energy efficient dehumidifiers for use inside our display cases, library and some of our aircraft. As part of the grant conditions, the museum has contributed 50% of the associated costs for the purchase and installation of the equipment. Forecast output from the solar panels should allow the museum to reduce our annual energy costs by at least 25%, and any surplus power generated will be fed back into the national grid.

This has been made possible thanks to the UK Shared Prosperity Fund from the UK Government and issued by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority’s ‘Levelling Up’ funds. The Museum would also like to thank Nigel Trant - Specialist Advisor, the team at SYMCA, and Kim, Vicki and the team at Turbine Energy - suppliers and installers of the solar equipment and dehumidifiers.
