Our Installations

  • Sparsholt & Andover College- 633kWp

    From September 2015 to February 2016 Spirit installed and commissioned Solar PV systems for 20 buildings spread out over Andover College, and Sparsholt College near Winchester. The arrays ranged from 32 to 400 panels on each roof. These all contributed to a total of over 2,500 BenQ 250W and BenQ 260W panels.

    It was the largest educational solar PV installation in the UK at the time of writing.

    The system was funded by GreenNation, so they have paid the full costs of installation. They benefit from the Feed-In tariff and Export tariff payments, and sell the electricity to Sparsholt and Andover College at a reduced rate. Sparsholt and Andover College benefit from the cheap electricity.

    The system was preaccredited so all systems could benefit from the higher 2015 Feed-In Tariff rate.

  • Tandem Group- 250kWp

    In January 2014 Spirit Solar Ltd completed a 249.75kWp system on the MV Sports and Leisure headquarters in Birmingham. The system cost roughly £240,000 and will expect to pay for itself in 7 years. The system was financed using a loan from Siemens finance. Income generated from the tariffs and savings are expected make the project self financing. Jim Shears, Group Finance Director, Tandem Group commented: “It is early days but we are delighted with the system performance so far. We expect the project to deliver long term financial savings for the Group. The installation process itself was pain free and efficiently carried out by Spirit Solar. All issues were promptly resolved and we would have no hesitation in recommending them” See live tracking for this system

  • Kier Construction – 123kWp

    In November 2013, Spirit Solar Ltd installed a 123kWp system on a new wing of the North Middlesex University Hospital. Based on the high demand of the hospital it is predicted it will use 100% of electricity generated at the time.  The system will expect to pay for itself in 7 years, resulting in a total annual income and savings of approximately £20,000.
