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 Services provide renewable energy services including solar thermal (hot water), air source heat pumps (ASHP), ground source heat pumps (GSHP), biomass boilers, rainwater harvesting, wind turbines and electric vehicle charging. PDP is an MCS Approved Installer, member of Trustmark, HIES Accredited member and NICEIC Approved Contractor.
PDP is offering all members of the BHBPA a FREE Solar PV consultation. For more information call 01444 480444 or email Mark Marchant email@example.com.
