Our Solar PV Solution

We identified Solar PV to be the most effective and cost-effective starting point. With an un-obstructed trapezoidal roof, we installed an East/West system, optimizing the space available.

This was all installed with consideration for battery storage and EV (Electric Vehicle) charge points, both future ambitions of the forward-thinking company.

We upgraded the distribution board and ensured the system was design and installed with the addition of the battery and EV components in mind. We move onto the next stage of the battery installation later this year once we have a full years’ worth of usage data to analyze and identify the specific size and requirements of the battery solution.
