For over 40 years, Gompels Healthcare Ltd – a family run business – has been distributing healthcare products all over the UK to surgeries, nurseries, dentists and many other industries. In 2014, the company approached EvoEnergy to help them offset their energy bills and receive a long term income from the feed-in tariff.
Having originally started the business from a tiny backyard, Gompels Healthcare is now operated from two large warehouses on a single site in Wiltshire.
With each building having its own power supply, two separate systems were installed and registered; 30 kWp on the low bay and 50 kWp on the high bay. Bigger systems could have been possible, however, the local Distribution Network Operator enforced an export limitation, restricting the maximum size of the systems to the electricity demands onsite.
Both systems took around 2 weeks to install and consisted of Fronius inverters and Renesola 250W panels, individually generating 44,300 kWh and 26,580 kWh every year.
