Highland Farm Cottages

Highland Farm Holiday cottages are luxury 5 star self catering accommodation.

Reason For Solar PV

The client estimated their annual electricity bill to be £25,000, therefore wished to save costs and reduce their carbon footprint. The client was also working towards achieving Gold status as part of Visit Scotland Tourism Award Scheme.

The Solution

R&I Cruden installed a 4kw solar PV system at 11 cottages on site, each system 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 was preserved. As a result, 176 solar panels now lie on the bank providing electricity to each holiday cottage. All of the inverters and switch gear were housed in the laundry room, so the excess heat from the inverters is reused with drying.

The Result

  • Electricity saving of CO2 reduced
  • Gold Status achieved
  • Green luxury accommodation
