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 a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
