A new Solar PV system for Climalife in Aztec West.
Earlier this summer, we were fortunate enough to complete a solar PV installation for Climalife – one of the UK’s leading distributors of refrigerants. The three-storey Aztec West office block had looked for alternative energy solutions after facing rising bills and wanting to become more environmentally independent.
After a site survey and reviewing our design and projections, Climalife were pleased to accept our quotation and for the installation to commence.
What was the solution?
The project faced numerous challenges – the 12 metre-high slate roof covering two aspects being one of them. We used our expertise to securely and safely pitch the 3.5-lift scaffolding around the building and set our renewable engineers to work.
The new 35-panel system will generate 12,518 kWh over a typical year. 15% (1,896 kWh) will be used directly in the property, and the remaining 85% (10,622 kWh) will be exported to the grid. The property is expected to consume 4600 kWh of electricity each year, with the solar array directly providing 41% (1,896 kWh).
What was the result?
Financially, the payback time for Climalife is ten years. Looking at the long term, over 25 years, they will save an estimated £25,800 in electricity savings and £24,000 in export payments. We are incredibly pleased to help another business in its journey towards a lower carbon footprint and long-term cost savings.
