Portsmouth Surgical Equipment 249.25kW Solar PV Installation
Portsmouth Surgical Equipment, in Portsmouth, Hampshire, are designers and makers of high quality theatre products used in operating theatres.
Portsmouth Surgical Equipment Ltd are designers and makers of high quality equipment used in operating theatres. They decided to maximise the installation size at their distribution centre in Portsmouth in order to lower their energy costs and receiving a new stream of income through the lucrative Feed-in Tariff (FiT). The 249.25kW installation will more than meet their energy demands throughout the day – and will even see the group send excess energy to the grid, all whilst benefiting from the Export Tariff.
The Export Tariff is another tariff paid on top of the FiT. This sees The National Grid buy back any energy generated by your installation that isn’t used by the building. This means that no energy generated is ever wasted and your installation will have an even greater ROI. At the time of installation the Export Tariff rate is 4.77p/kWh and will reward Portsmouth Surgical Equipment with £3,242 per year.
This installation is comprised of 997 SolarWorld 250W panels. SolarWorld panels come with a 25-year linear performance guarantee, meaning our clients can be happy that the panels will continue to perform well for the duration of the FiT. The panels were connected to 8 ABB TRIO-27.6 inverters. These inverters convert the energy generated from the panels into usable power and allow the installation to benefit from the FiT.
