Electricals wholesaler Moss Electrical is to invest in a 1.1MW rooftop solar system at the firm’s Dartford headquarters.

The company is to invest more than £1 million to fit the system on top of its 150,000 sq ft offices having already installed a 50kW system on the office’s flat roof, and the company intends to complete the fit by September.

Robert Moss, managing director at Moss Electricals, said the company had come to the decision after experiencing a surge in sales of its own domestic solar kit building services and ground-mount installations.

“The commercial installation sector is ripe for growth. More companies are realising the potential savings to be made through self-consumption. PV is a long-term investment, and high-quality product and technical support help customers make well-informed decisions,” he said.

Sustain Commercial Solar has designed the system and generated electricity will be used to power the office’s operations, supply to local businesses or export to the national grid.
