Commercial Solar Panel Installation – Romshed Farm, Sevenoaks

Commercial Solar Panel Installation – Romshed Farm, Sevenoaks

PROJECT OVERVIEW

As an organic producer and being inherently proud of its conservation farming, Romshed Farm was interested in aligning its energy usage with its ethos. Romshed Farm is very much part of the local community so the ability to produce its own energy sat well with them. A further factor in the Farm’s decision to use solar PV was the ever rising cost of traditional energy, the continual price increases were causing concern for the farms’ management – bringing the budgetary cost of energy back within the farms control would help secure the long term viability of Romshed Farm.

The installation took a total of 12 days to fully install the mountings, carry out the required electrical work and mount the panels. The German manufactured Solarworld panels offer 20kWh of power and were fitted with Enphase Micro Inverters. This was a key feature of the proposal by JPS and would ensure that Romshed Farm gained the best return on investment on their capital outlay.

In the short term the electricity consumption of the farm has been vastly reduced, whilst longer term the feed-in tariffs and export tariffs should offer a new revenue stream of over £3,000 per annum. In all, the financial outlay of the installation will have paid for itself within 7 years.

We have found the entire process, from initial consultation to final installation, to be very smooth running. JPS offered us great, relevant advice and talked through the technical and financial implications of different systems along with the potential benefits to us and the farm. It made making the final decision far simpler for us. The installation was quick, efficient and we started benefiting from the solar PV immediately. The idea to divert any excess energy means that we maximise our investment by receiving hot water for the farm throughout the year.
