Highland Farm Cottages
Highland Farm Holiday cottages are luxury 5 star self catering accommodation.
Reason For Solar PV
To reduce carbon footprint and save money, estimated £25,000 annual electric bill. Also working towards achieving Gold status as part of Visit Scotland Tourism Award Scheme.
Installed in 2015 11 cottages had a 4kW solar PV system installed, each system was made up of 16 panels. All the Solar panels were installed together on a south facing grass bank so the authentic look of the cottage roofs were preserved. As a result 176 solar panels now lie on the bank providing electricity to each holiday cottage. All the inverters and switch gear was housed in the laundry room so the excess heat of the inverters is reused with drying.
Electricity saving of CO2 reduced, Gold Status achieved, Green luxury accommodation.
