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.

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"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. "
