Marches Renewable Energy: Solar PV

The Key Facts:

Location: Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire UK

Grant recipient: Edmo Ltd, specialists in aluminium extrusion, fabrication and finishing across a huge variety of market sectors – from aerospace engineering to accessibility aids.

Building: Large extrusion/fabrication factory and head office.

Solar PV: Solar panel electricity systems, also known as photovoltaics (PV), convert the sun’s energy to generate electricity. These cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day

Renewable energy installation: Solar PV

Additional capacity: 130 kWp roof mounted system kWp is the peak power of a PV system or panel. The power is calculated under a standardised test for panels across all manufacturers to ensure that the values listed are capable of comparison.

Predicted energy generation: 120,602 kWh A kilowatt hour (kWh) is the energy consumed by a 1,000- watt or 1-kilowatt electrical appliance operating for 1 hour.

CO2 saving per year: 33.44 tonnes

Based on an emission conversion factor of 0.2773 of a kilogram of carbon dioxide per kilowatt hour


The Financials:

System Cost: £81,040
Funding: 50% Marches Renewable Energy grant; 50% Edmo Ltd own funds
Predicted payback time from energy cost saving: 6.8 years, reduced to 3.4 years with the grant
