This project was a 4kWp ground mount Solar PV system installed in February 2015. The system was anticipated to generate 3533kWh in its first year, but it actually generated around 400kW more than that, giving the customer much better payments from the Feed-in Tariff than originally expected. The beauty of this particular installation was the location so we were able to site the array facing bang South, hence it gets optimum sun at all times, and with zero shading.
The trench for the armoured cable run on this project was around 50m. We had to design a bespoke ground mount solution to account for the steep slope where it was placed.
