Anglesea Heights Nursing Home – Bupa UK – Installation of PV System

Working in partnership with Photon, we recently completed an installation of a 98kw system on the pantile roof of the Anglesea Heights Nursing Home.

With round the clock occupancy their electricity usesage is higher than most, this system will have a significant impact on their energy bills as they are such a high user.

Special consideration was taken during the installation to respect the residents, keeping noise to a minimum and observing Health and Safety guidelines.anglesea-heights-exterior-001-912x325

6KW PV at Salhouse

We have installed a 6kw system at The Lodge, Salhouse
on a slate roof using solar limpits and 265w Canadian Solar modules
This array has some shading so the end result here will be a production of around 5000 units of electricity per year. Salhouse Lodge is a busy place especially in summer so they will use virtually all of that. So that’s 5000 units of electricity per year that they won’t have to buy.

Wholesale module prices

With a reduction in the feed-in tariffs has followed a corresponding reduction in the price of solar PV modules. Consequently we have been able to pass these savings on to our customers. This means there is now a further reduction in the overall cost of a fully installed solar PV system. We can now offer fully fitted 4Kw peak systems for an all inclusive price of £5300.00 subject to survey. Furthermore a 3Kw system retails at £4400.00 all inclusive subject to survey
.

This is a Sanyo 3.52Kw peak system using Sunny Boy SB4000TL20 dual tracking inverter. This was also installed in Postwick, Norfolk.

This is a 3Kw peak in landscape with ET modules and a Sunny Boy 3000TL inverter. This was another installation in Postwick.

This is a Sanyo 3.52Kw peak system using Sunny Boy SB4000TL20 dual tracking inverter. This was also installed in Postwick, Norfolk.

This was a 2.8Kw peak array at Mundsley in Norfolk, with a Sunny Boy 3000HF inverter.

This is a west facing array of 4Kw peak east/west system at Holme Hale, Norfolk.

This is the east facing aspect of the above installation.

Due to the difficult access of this installation it was necessary to use fixed scaffolding. Generally we use our own quick assembly tower scaffold. This is assembled and removed within the same day of the install.
