Commercial 3 phase system

Location: Central Leeds
Size of Array: 4 kw
Estimated annual saving: £3.500

Details:
Our client, a large childcare nursery was concerned about their rising electricity bill. They contracted us to design a system which would generate a significant proportion of their base load electricity.

We calculated that they used 3000 watts constantly when they were open, just on base load items such as lighting, alarms, and computers. Their consumption was fed through a three phase supply.

Our solution was to supply and fit a 4kw system, split over three invertors, one for each phase. This would allow the system to supply all three phases equally and therefore maximise their own use of the electricity before passing any excess back to the national grid.

The work was completed as part of a roof replacement project, so we were able to carefully integrate the system onto the roof, in conjunction with specialist roofing contractors.

The front of the property was a conservation area so the whole system had to fit onto the rear and not be visible from the frontage.

We specified ET Solar panels, Eversolar invertors and Hilti bracket systems for the project. The feed in tariff payments on this system, whilst important, were dwarfed by the savings made by supplying the building’s base load with solar generated electricity.
