NGPS managed to get a 1.92kW Sanyo system into this limited roof space.
Thats the advantage of the market leading Sanyo modules, 240 watts at 19% efficiency , available in 1.5m x 0.8m …no other module comes near it.
Sixteen Sanyo HIT240 watt modules for Mr and Mrs C in Hordle near Lymington.
This system costs less than 15K to install including SMA4000TL inverter and remote bluetooth display and will generate an income of around £1700 a year, every year for the next twenty five years.
This income is tax free and index linked. The system will also reduce import costs by at least 25% .
This system is 3.84 kW.
Sixteen Sanyo HIT240 watt modules at 19% efficiency for Mr Bell in Ringwood.
This sub £15K South facing solar PV system will generate a minimum of £1700 a year with the feed in tariff .
That is a minimum ROI of £42,500 tax free and index linked over the 25 year contract period and the system will also save at least 30% of his import bill.
This system comprises seventeen Schott 230 watt modules on a perfect purpose built South facing base with the modules at the 30 degree optimum.
We used Schott, the top German module for this project as the panels are extremely strong and it is a windy location and Schott have an amonia protection which is more suitable for this farming location.
The cool breeze will keep the modules at a lower operating temperature and during one week in mid June 2011 this system generated 163 units. That is over £10 a day during this period of poor June weather.
Although the modules are a fairly average 13% efficient this installation is set to generate at least £1600 a year , tax free and index linked for 25 years.
