The scaffolding is up at ‘Brewster Towers’ this week and we are having our very own 3.67kw solar array fitted by local company ‘Natural Energy Sources’ in time for the March deadline.
Yes, we carried out our own full structural appraisal and luckily no additional strengthening works were necessary.
Stephen, who has been leading the solar project, says ‘hopefully we will be creating our own energy by Friday this week, we just need some sunshine now!’
Adrian Adam, Sales and Marketing Director for Natural Energy Sources commented “We were approached by Brewsters to install a solar PV system on their business to help reduce electricity usage from the national grid and to show a commitment to renewable energy. After assessing the property, analysing available options with the aid of state-of-the-art design software, and liaising with the team at Brewsters, we designed and installed a 3.67 kW system using 15 Hyundai monocrystalline modules and a top of the range Power One inverter. This system would maximise the yield with the available roof space and significantly help to reduce the carbon footprint of the company.
The solar project forms part of an ongoing scheme to increase our green credentials and reduce our carbon footprint. Our recent office refurbishment has included the installation of other energy saving features such as an automatic light control system which will activate only when an area is occupied and also measure the ambient light levels within the offices with lights coming on only when necessary, it’s hoped that we will save at least 70% of our lighting costs by using this system.
If you are thinking of ‘going green’ and are interested in solar pv panels but want to check if your roof is strong enough to take the increased load, check out our services for solar pv, with prices starting from £75 + VAT why take the risk?
