Chidswell Farm

Reason For Installing Solar

Chidswell Farm Shop in Dewsbury, Yorkshire. The butchers and shop have fridges and freezers running 24/7 and we use £5,600 a year in
electricity, with the energy saving alone a Solar PV system was a great choice to reduce energy bills.

The Solution

In 2016 R&I Cruden installed a 50kW Solar PV system across 2 farm shed roofs. R&I Cruden installed 170 panels with 3 inverters as well as all the cabling and switch gear.

The Result

Energy savings of Payback in 7.5 years. Investment for the future. Possibility of battery banks to allow 24 hours of solar energy saving.

I was concerned with bad stories about Solar installation companies. R&I Cruden came highly recommended by a friend and I am delighted with the job they have done
