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.

Commercial Solar PV Panels, Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire

on by Jason

Installed on the 27th March 2014 for Holdsworth Windows in Shipston-on-Stour the 22.44kWp Solar PV system has already exceeded the estimated generation by over 11%.

We were contacted in February 2014 by the client as they wished to reduce their energy consumption. We installed 88 x Schueco 255w panels with 2 x SMA STP9000TL Tri-Power inverters.

The estimated annual generation was 19,030kWh. With still 3 weeks to go before the system’s first anniversary it has already generated over 21,500kWh of FREE electricity.

The client is extremely happy as they will also receive a 20 year guaranteed income for the generation alone as well as the considerable saving to their energy bill and also the green credentials owing to their reduced carbon footprint. What’s not to like with commercial solar??? You will even struggle to see the panels!!!!

SunPower Solar PV outperforms predictions, Farthinghoe, Northamptonshire

on by Jason

We have received the following feedback from a customer on the anniversary of his SunPower​ Solar Panel with SolarEdge​ panel optimisation installation.

“It has Generated 3,633kWh which has returned £625.60 – this is nearly 15% up on the estimated 3,108kWh

My electric bill has reduced by £177

My oil usage has gone down as I fitted a device which switches on the immersion heater when there is excess electric, this one is pretty hard to quantify but I would normally use about 300 litres over the summer months at the price I paid for it when I last filled up  53ppl  comes to £159

This gives me a Total saving over the last year of £961.60 which if I look at the return on the installation £7,700  (including removing the chimney) gives me 12.48% and a payoff time of 8 years, it will probably be better this year as I did not fit the device for the immersion heater until May,

I am extremely pleased with the results.”

Biomass Boiler & District Heating System – Knowle, West Midlands

on by Jason

Working to a specification provided by Greenway & Partners we were asked to design a Biomass heating system that could provide a peak heat output of 180kW to provide heating and hot water to thirteen brand new build premium houses on a gated estate near Knowle, West Midlands developed by Spitfire Construction.

Working with Davis & Birch mechanical engineers we designed and installed two ETA PEK 90kW wood pellet boilers in a dedicated plant room that has 4,400litres of buffer storage that will distribute heating via a district heating pipe around the thirteen homes. The installation allowed for each boiler to work independently depending on heating demand allowing for equal ware but when demand increase they would cascade together to increase heating output.

The plant room has two integral sloping floor pellet stores that via auger provide fuel automatically to each boiler.

The whole system is connected via ETA’s meinETA which allows for remote maintenance & control.

To ensure total fail safe there is also an LPG boiler to provide emergency backup if there is a catastrophic failure of the two ETA boilers.

As the system is a district heating system the client will be able to claim the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive which will pay over £400,000 for the next 20 years.

SunPower Solar Panels Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire “extremely professional & attentive”

on by Jason

We have received the following feedback from a customer who we installed a Solar PV system for before Christmas:

“We were very glad we went with a local firm. They were extremely professional & attentive taking great care in ensuring our needs were met. The installation team were excellent, again pure professionals. We cannot rate Stratford Energy Solutions more highly and would recommend them without hesitation.”

The system used 12 x SunPower E20 327w Solar Panels (3.92kWp) with SolarEdge inverter & power optimisers which ensures maximum generation as well as individual panel monitoring.
