As well as being important to their sustainability & cost reduction objectives, this initiative serves as a pilot, with the possibility of future installations across other group locations.
UBT is committed to optimising their environmental footprint, so utilising energy from sustainable sources was a key factor in the decision to install a solar PV system, allowing them to act responsibly and bring value to their stakeholders.
UBT manage the building for Focus Learning Trust, who own the property and are a registered charity. This added some complexity to the overall legal process as additional charities act and landlord consents were required to be obtained.
After a detailed survey and due diligence, Zestec’s partner, PSE designed and installed a 226.6kWp solar PV system using BYD solar modules and Solis inverters.
Because UBT wanted to maximise the forecast energy savings, they needed to work with a partner who utilised the best technology available, had extensive expertise and offered a long-term, hassle free financing and active management renewable energy solution.
