Michael Pavis are one of the Midland’s largest independent heating and plumbing merchants, supplying 8,000 product lines to over 1,500 trade, contract and retail customers. In 2011, the independently owned business decided to utilise the unused roof space of their warehouse, trade counter and two extensive showrooms to install a solar PV system for financial and environmental purposes.
Michael Pavis and EvoEnergy have several things in common – both are forward-thinking, Nottingham based businesses who are well respected in their industries. So when Michael Pavis appointed EvoEnergy to install a 344.75 kWp system on their roof space, it was the start of a perfect partnership.
The system comprises of 1,366 Hyundai 250W panels and covers an impressive 2,277m2 of roof space. It was designed to maximise return on investment before the anticipated feed-in tariff cuts, and with an annual output of 266,417 kWh will yield returns of 12% for the next 25 years.
The installation also delivered a huge boost to the company’s green credentials, allowing them to reduce their carbon emissions by 140,935 kg a year.
