Seasons in the sun


A South Wales business has been reaping the rewards after installing solar PV panels on its factory buildings.
Solar Windows Ltd of Caerphilly, which manufactures PVC-U windows, invested in a 110.4 kWp Enfinity system. It worked with installation company Gibson Specialist Technical Services and Enfinity, a market leader in solar PV, to reduce its energy bills.
Some 470 Enfinity PV modules, which cover 777 sq. metres of pitched metal roof, allow the company to offset some of its considerable energy usage and to reduce carbon emissions. The installation has generated 99,360 kWh of clean electricity in its first year of operation, exceeding its estimated energy production.
