Outperforming by well over 13%

Posted by & filed under Agricultural Case Study, Solar Case Study.

Grainstores with their high energy usage biased towards the summer months and large shallow pitched roof areas, are ideal candidates for Solar PV arrays.

When a large Estate based near Salisbury approached T H White’s Handling and Storage division for a new Grainstore at one of their sites, our engineers suggested incorporating a PV System. The clients loved this idea and, with a few minor modifications to the building’s design, it was optimised for a 50kWp Solar PV system.

The Solar PV system, which is remotely monitored daily by T H White Energy from our offices in Devizes, Wiltshire via a datalogger connected to a GSM modem, is currently outperforming its predicted performance (SAP 2009) by well over 13%!

As well as the grain handling equipment installed by T H White Handling and Storage and the solar PV system installed by T H White Energy, the building also features a security system from T H White’s Security and Fire division.
