8kW PV system at Corrymoor Farm

Wool producer reduces CO2 emissions

Based in the Blackdown Hills, Corrymoor Socks is a Devon-based business that enjoys a worldwide reputation for producing wool products including socks, scarves and throws.

Owner Steve Whitley commissioned SOL Electrical to design and install a solar PV system that would best suit the farm’s particular energy requirements, whilst reducing the effect his business has on the environment.

System Details

  • 8kW output
  • Panels: 32 x Solar World Sunmodule 250 watt modules
  • Inverters: 2 x SMA SB3600TL inverters

Taking into account income generated through the Feed-in Tariff and savings through producing their own electricity, Corrymoor Socks can expect their PV system to pay for itself within 7 years.
