E. Park and Sons Ltd, a potato producer in UK, decided to install a new rooftop solar PV system at their main processing plant in order to meet environmental goals and to also ensure a more stable and predictable energy supply.  The company selected Renewables 4 Business to design, supply and install the solar PV plant.

The final 681.6 kWp solar PV plant design was split across two arrays on two different buildings. The main building with the bulk of the PV generation had a 586.5 kWp array. A second smaller cold store building on the site had the remaining 94.5 kWp capacity. 2,742 BenQ 250W panels were employed in the system in total. The entire installation was completed in just eight weeks by Renewables 4 Business.

Renewables 4 Business selected Delta TL inverters for the solar PV system. The reliable transformerless inverters feature a rugged cast aluminum chassis and IP65 weatherproof rating, fitting for the UK climate.

The new solar PV system is now in operation and generates over 560,000 kwh of electricity per year, and provides an annual reduction of 320 tonnes C02. The new solar PV system provides additional income and savings for the company of around £100,000 annually, which can cover a significant portion of the overall electrical running cost for the site. Renewables 4 Business was able to help E. Park and Sons to meet their long term environmental objectives but also provide them with a stable and predictable energy supply that will make it easier to avoid higher energy costs in the future.
