Off grid evaluation demonstrates energy generation is feasible

Clean Energy has recently completed an off grid renewable electricity feasibility study for a client with planning permission to convert a rurally located barn into a new home where the costs to connect to the grid network were considered prohibitive (in excess of £110,000.00).

The study analysed the electricity demand of the property taking into account all the electrical appliances, the client’s lifestyle, chosen heating system and an allowance for increased occupancy. The evaluation identified that a solar 6.24 kWp battery system would meet demand, and during periods of limited solar gain, a diesel generator was specified for back up. A wind turbine was preferable to the diesel generator but it was identified that the planning department was not sympathetic to an application for a turbine in the required location.

If you are looking to go off grid, or grid connection costs are prohibitive, contact us for our off grid electricity evaluations.

Thank you very much for the report which looks excellent and at this stage looks a worthwhile exercise.
