GreenGenUK installed a 54.12kW Solar PV array at an agricultural farm, embracing renewable energy solutions and becoming energy independent. This case study looks into the benefits of commercial solar.

Commercial solar

Tregarrick Farm is a new Robotic milking parlor near Helston, they experience high energy usage and so looking into a cost-effective energy solution was a must! We visited the business and conducted a site visit. During this time, we were able to discuss the needs of the new business with the owner, these were to reduce their operation costs and carbon footprint.

A bespoke proposal was sent and the installation included:

132 x JA Solar 410W Mono Black Frame panels

2 x Solis 20kW 3ph

Schletter/Renusol Mounting System

Extended Warranty

Due to the roof having very little Shading, we were able to install 6 rows of 22 panels on the corrugated cement fibre roof. We have estimated that this commercial Solar PV installation angled at 40﮿ with a 17﮿ pitch will generate 54174.12Kw of output in the first year, meaning great savings on electricity bills and a very attractive payback!
