Solar PV installed at our Wessex region

12 December 2022

Wessex region has successfully completed a solar PV project at its head office in Malmesbury.

The installation was overseen by Clarkson Evans, with the products provided by Solen Energy UK.

The new high-quality system will provide improved energy efficiency and lower running costs for the business.

The 160-panel system will produce an impressive 58,583 kWh of electricity annually, with a return on investment within five years.

Commenting, Julian Roper, Managing Director of Persimmon Wessex said:

"We have been very pleased with the advice and installation.

“The PV install of 61Kw solar array will substantially reduce our energy costs, and our fully-electric office will benefit immensely.

“The one-stop shop from Clarkson Evans has simplified the process as they have liaised with the DNO and obtained all the relevant permissions.

“The PV install, our full LED lighting upgrade and EV car charger points will significantly improve the sustainability and energy impact of our head office in Malmesbury."
