The site is a state-of-the-art bottling plant that was uses over 250,000 kWh of electricity per annum which is very common in this type of premises. The plant has a large roof area, half of which faces due South which is bathed in day-light all day every day. As the business looked at sustainable ways in which to reduce it’s overheads, they followed advice from energy industry experts and opted to install a Solar PV system to provide a proportion of their energy needs
Following lengthy discussions with the grid operator, permission was granted for a 50kWp Solar PV system to be installed using Tier 1 Risen PV panels and a Delta RPI inverter, supplied with a 10 year product warranties and a 25 year performance output warranty for the panels
. The system will generate over 44,000kWh of clean renewable energy for the business to use for free on site and is forecast to pay for itself in just over 5 years and will return more than £260,000 worth of financial benefits
for the business over the minimum 25 year lifespan of the system.
The Results & Feedback
The result is a high performing Solar PV system that has reduced the companies reliance on grid-fed power, reduced their exposure to future energy cost rises and improved their green credentials and CO2 output.
Production Director Gary Joyce commented;
‘The whole design, supply and installation process was completely painless and I would recommend Perfect Sense Energy to anyone looking for advice on reducing their energy spend.’
