Our Installations

  • Domestic PV installation – March 2017

    In 2017, Spirit Solar completed a 4kWp installation on behalf of a homeowner in Basingstoke. The owner wanted a high performance system with long product guarantees. Spirit Solar suggested the use of Sunpower Maxeon 327W Solar panels and Solar Edge inverters. Both of which have longer than normal guarantees, and are high performance products.


  • Millgate (Winchester) Ltd- Charis Holt – 2017

    In early 2017, Spirit Solar completed a 12kWp installation on the garage block of a high-end residential site developed by Millgate Winchester Ltd. The project presented an usual challenge due to the crescent shape of the roof and the clients requirement for a roof integrated installation.

    Spirit Solar we able to design and fit an entirely bespoke PV system, manufactured by GB-sol Ltd. Thus ensuring that the entire roof was covered by Solar Panels.


  • Sparsholt & Andover College 633kWp – 2016

    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.

    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.
