Purdy/Kinovo Head Office are making steps towards reducing the Groups’ carbon footprint.

We have installed a new solar PV installation to complement our existing PV panels to provide up to 7kW of free energy.

The system consists of the following:

  • 10 x module solar PV system. Each module is rated to nominal power output of 365W and are of the Monocrystalline cell type construction.
  • Inverter is rated at 3.6 kW which the system can overall maximum produce.
  • The system has been mounted in a non-conventional method as fixed to a corrugated metal curved Nissan hut roof. Using a specialist manufacturer they helped to design the fixings and layout of the system.
  • G98 form has been sent off to the DNO (UKPN) and approved.

These are all in addition to the old Solar PV System previously installed at the office consisting of 14 Panels x module system each panel output rating – 215W  Sunny Boy 3kW Inverter

Dan Bevan commented, “The main benefit of having these Solar PV systems in place is the amount of electrical output both system generate directly from sunlight. The maximum amount of electricity the systems can produce under ideal conditions (Known as “Peak Sun”) would be 6.6 kW (28A) but they even still generating electricity on cloudy days like today just at a lower level!”

Our newly converted offices which houses the Bids Team, Finance department, Fleet and HR will be heated from our recently installed ground source heat pump. Both of these new installations will reduce our carbon footprint and allow us to become PAS2030 registered, opening further opportunities to the business going forward.

The two Electric Vehicle chargers were the first ones to be installed at Kinovo/Purdy Head Office by Purdy’s EV charging division.

These chargers are available for staff and visitors to use.
