Case Studies

Novar Estate


Reason for using Solar PV

Off grid site miles from main electricity connection. Choice between a diesel generator or Solar PV. To provide power for lighting and charging of batteries for power tools etc.

The Solution

2.5kW Solar PV battery system was installed by R&I Cruden in 2016. Purpose built frame for the panels was erected for optimum solar gain.

The Result

Provides enough power for low energy lighting and charging of tools and phones etc. Noisy generator not required.

The end result is excellent and means we don't need to run a noisy generator. The panels look great
