50kW PV array for Van Guard Accessories Ltd

Leading Exeter-based manufacturer turns roof space into income stream

An independent energy audit suggested that the most effective way of local manufacturer Van Guard reducing its £20,000 p/a electricity bill was to install roof-mounted solar PV. SOL was appointed to install a 50kW system using Solar Edge optimisation technology with SolarWorld modules. The project was completed within the agreed timescale and with minimal disruption to the business’s day-to-day operations. The company’s directors can expect the system to pay for itself within 5 years.

System Details

  • 50kW with the potential to deliver all of the electricity required across the site
  • Export limitation boosts on-site consumption of electricity produced, so minimising Grid electricity costs
  • Panels: 200 x German-manufactured SolarWorld Polycrystalline (with 10 year product warranty)
  • Inverters: 3 x SolarEdge SE17K (with 12 year warranty) maximise performance

Van Guard Accessories spoke to several of our past clients which provided them with the peace of mind that their systems would be installed, commissioned and maintained to the highest industry standards by a local, experienced firm.
