Solar PV Case Study: Parkley Farm Holiday Cottages
Installation Date: December 2014
Parkley Farm Holiday Cottages wanted a solution to their ever increasing electricity bill. With the farmhouse and five cottages running off electricity for heating and hot water as well as general electrical use, they needed a solution. Unfortunately there was not a lot of roof space and the owners didn’t want panels on the cottage roofs.
Absolute came up with the idea for a 50kW (200 panel) system in a field beside running electricity back to the supply meter. This site was also a first for Absolute as the dig depth was only 500mm we couldn’t use our normal method and used concrete plinths.
