ABOUT THE BUILDING

ACES is a commercial compressor manufacturer specialising in industrial cooling, refrigeration, and heating appliances, located in Oxford. Their manufacturing facility is in a building with a trapezoidal roof and a weekday energy consumption profile from 8 am to 5 pm.

SOLUTIONS

The Remote Solar Survey was followed by a site visit to finalise the electrical schematic and confirm the assumptions made during the survey. Absolar utilised Tier-1 JA 555W solar panels and one of the industry's best 36kW Solis inverters. The larger panel size allowed for increased solar energy production, effectively utilising the available roof space.

ACES approached us for a Remote Solar Survey through our partnership with the NatWest Group. After analysing the half-hourly energy consumption of the building, Absolar recommended a 38kWp system.



BENEFITS

  • A significant portion, 38%, of the building's energy demand is met through solar energy generation, resulting in substantial energy savings.


  • The PV system boasts a relatively short payback period of around 5 years, attributed to the high onsite consumption of solar energy.


  • The installed PV system demonstrates remarkable on-site consumption, peaking at 93% on weekdays year-round, with minimal export occurring primarily only on weekends.
