Nissan Leaf 4,000 mile update

on by Jason

We have been using the Nissan Leaf for a few months now and recently completed 4,000 miles.

So how has it been? Absolutely great!! We must admit we have adjusted our driving style, but driving is less stressful with less rushing about. Once you understand when to use ECO mode and not it drives like any other car.

Running costs; the vehicle has required 3.8kWh per mile over the 4,000 miles so based on electricity cost of 13p/kWh that is 1,052kWh of electricity = £136.84. However, some of that electricity has been provided by Solar PV panels (circa. 20%) so in reality this is probably more like a cost of £104. So 2.6p/mile!!!! Remember we also get paid to generate that FREE electricity at today’s FiT rate of 13.39p/kWh so real life cost is more like £75.83 = 1.9p/mile!!!!

It hasn’t all been plain sailing, we did have a mishap in the first week with a total wipeout in terms of charge. Very windy, cold & wet and range was reduced by about 20%. Nissan recovered the vehicle for FREE back to the nearest EV chargepoint which happened to be home. This won’t happen again.

Going forward we think the investment has been a wise one and Electric Cars so offer low cost, carbon reduced driving!!!

SunPower Solar Hospital outperforms by 20%, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire

on by Jason

One year anniversary proves that the investment in quality Solar panels was the right one with the 49.70kWp Solar PV system at Leamington Rehabilitation Hospital outperforming estimated generation by 20%.

The 152 x SunPower E20 327w panels with SMA TriPower inverters have been closely monitored by us since we installed them in June 2014. We had estimated generation to be 43,390kWh per annum but actual was 54,046kWh.

The system was purchased by Community Energy Warwickshire as part of their “Solar Powered Hospitals” project. The Co-Op consists of like-minded members that all purchased shares in the scheme.

SunPower Solar Panels Kenilworth, Warwickshire

on by Jason

As part of a project to re-roof a house in Kenilworth we were asked to consider Solar Panels. With only room for 10 panels & with 2 aspects to consider we recommended SunPower E20 327w High Efficiency Solar Panels with SolarEdge inverter & power optimisers to ensure maximum power output from each panel.

The 3.27kWp system was installed by our team in less than one day and is now generating FREE electricity for the customer.

They reported back to us following the installation “Thanks for all your help, we’ve been impressed with how smooth the process has been and appreciative of your efforts to accommodate the quick turnaround that we needed.”

SunPower Solar Panels, Leamington Hospital break 50,000kWh

on by Jason

With more than 2 weeks to go until the first anniversary of installation the 49.70kWp Solar Panel system have broken the 50,000kWh barrier of generation.

The system was estimated to generate 43,000kWh of FREE electricity for the Rehabilitation Hospital at Leamington Spa and provide the members of Community Energy Warwickshire, who own the system, a guaranteed 20 year income.

The 152 x SunPower High Efficiency E20 327w panels and 3 x SMA Tri-Power inverters are performing well above expectations.

We will monitor and report on the 1st anniversary in a couple of weeks time.

SunPower X21 Solar Panels Conservation Area, Leamington Spa Warwickshire

on by Jason

With limited roof area our client wished to install Solar panels on the rear of his house in Leamington Spa. The property was in the conservation area so this meant we had to only use the roof s facing to the rear.

The client had already had a bad experience after paying a deposit to an installer who had no advance payment protection insurance and subsequently went into receivership. He was therefore keen to use a local company. 

With space only for 11 panels we chose world leading SunPower X21 345w panels with efficiency of over 21%. The 3.8kWp system also had the potential for some early morning shading from a chimney so we chose SolarEdge panel optimisers & inverter which ensure indepedant energy production & panel monitoring.

We finished the one day install off by retrofitting high performance LED downlights throughout the kitchen & ground floor area. This would help reduce energy demand for lighting in this area by 90% to allow the energy generated by the solar panels to be used effectively used for other demands such as appliances, home office, etc.
