The portal gives an automatic calculation on how much kg CO2 the solar production saves the school. It compares it with how much CO2 would be eventually absorbed by planting a set amount of trees. For instance, in the school year 2020-2021 (1 August 2020 to 31 July 2021) the solar panels were operational from September and produced 250,175 kWh = 250.18 MWh = 98,070.56 kg CO2 were saved = planting 2927.48 trees (data provided by our energy digital monitors).
