Strutwood Farm in Surrey approached Myriad CEG about the possibility of installing solar PV on its agricultural buildings to help reduce the farm’s carbon footprint but also, more significantly, protect the farm from spiralling utility costs.

Myriad CEG recommended that the farm install PV on two south-facing, adjacent farm buildings. The installation saw arrays of 90 and 60 panels installed on the roof respectively, combining to make a total capacity of 28.5kWp.

It is estimated that panels will produce 22.5MWh of electricity per year, exceeding the farm’s current annual usage of 20MWh, and effectively allowing the farm’s energy usage to be totally self-sufficient.

Myriad CEG were able to complete the installation in time to meet the tight deadline imposed, allowing the system to be commissioned before the March 3 deadline.
