Burgess Hill based PDP Services has recently completed another Solar PV install on a commercial roof space. The installation is on the roof of Bluelite Graphics Ltd premises, also in Burgess Hill.
PDP is a leading commercial Solar PV installer, specialising in both small and large solar installations. PDP has been installing solar PV systems on various types of properties for over ten years including warehouses, schools and solar farms.
Bluelite Graphics specialise in vehicle livery to the emergency services, fleet wrapping and premise signs. Steve Avery, Director at Bluelite Graphics, approached PDP Services after seeing the solar installation on PDP’s new premises and was interested in how they could produce their own electricity and reduce their carbon footprint.
Steve said ‘Having won the BHPA Eco Warrior Award the company wanted to look further into generating its own electricity and approached PDP services for information on Solar Panels. Their knowledge and expertise in this product is vast, and having had the roof covered in panels we have benefited from a saving of over 50% of our energy costs in the first month. Bluelite has been very impressed with the level of service that PDP gave us, they have been very professional and efficient through the whole process and would have no hesitation in recommending them.’
Mark Marchant, PDP’s Solar Manager comments ‘The case for businesses to invest in their own Solar PV system has never been stronger. Of course there are the considerable financial savings, but other benefits include a greatly reduced carbon footprint, energy security and of course the public perception of the company.’
The system installed for Bluelite Graphics will generate approximately 24,000 kWh of electricity per year. Half of this will be used by Bluelite with the other half being exported back to the grid. The expected payback period is 11 years.

PDP is an MCS Approved Installer, member of Trustmark, HIES Accredited member and NICEIC Approved Contractor.

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
