T H White expands its green credentials

Posted by & filed under Biomass News, Solar PV News.

The month of July saw two new renewable energy systems come online at T H White branches; the first a 43.19kW Solar PV system at T H White’s new car showroom in Swindon, and the second a 65kW biomass energy cabin at T H White Installation’s offices in Devizes. Both were installed by T H White’s very own renewable energy specialists T H White Energy.

The Swindon showroom’s solar PV system consists of a larger roof mounted solar array and 3 smaller vertical facade solar arrays. Adding to the building’s already impressive environmental credentials, it is predicted that almost all the energy generated by the system will be used on site and thus will significantly reduce the amount of electricity needing to be imported from the grid. This now takes the number of PV systems on T H White buildings to 5 with a combined generation power exceeding 150kW.

Meanwhile in Devizes, Wiltshire a big grey box appeared outside T H White Installation’s offices. This box was in fact a Euroheat energy cabin which is essentially a containerised biomass heating system. Containing a 65kW HDG wood pellet biomass boiler, 1,500 litre accumulator, 200 litre expansion vessel and a 12 tonne fuel store. The energy cabin now provides all the heating and hot water requirements for T H White Installation. The system replaces the existing gas boiler and with the benefit of the fuel savings and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which pays £190,000 over its lifetime the system will pay for itself in 7 years and be income generating thereafter!

The addition of the Energy cabin to the 30kWp Solar PV system already installed at the site means that the offices are now almost completely energy self-sufficient.

The T H White Energy team will be more than delighted to show anybody who is interested around the energy cabin. So if you think an energy cabin might be the right solution for you and want to have a look around one or just want to see a biomass boiler in action please contact Kriss on 01380 723040 to arrange a time to come in.
