Computing | Hatfield | 2009kW solar PV system

Computacenter is a European company that provides computer services to public and private sector customers. Just like the vast majority of businesses in the IT sector, the business has always placed a key focus on the efficient management of its energy costs. Computacenter approached us after recently re-contracting its energy contracts, which saw its energy prices rise by almost 50%.

Project Overview

Following an initial consultation and several site visits, our experts recommended a tailored solar panel installation as the most effective way for Computacenter to manage the impact of ever-increasing energy costs. Having assessed the company’s requirements in detail, we developed a bespoke solar panel installation, tailored to Computacenter’s unique energy profile.

The result is a 2009.39kWp rooftop solar PV installation, complete with 6379 x 315w Risen Energy Modules.

This allows Computacenter to benefit from 1,868,624 kWh per annum of clean on-site generated electricity, helping it to make significant savings on its bills, along with a levelled cost of electricity of £0.02/kWh.

What’s more, the new installation also helps the company substantially reduce its carbon footprint, with an annual emissions CO₂ saving of 571,798kgs. This carbon reduction gives Computacenter irrefutable green credentials, which are becoming increasingly important for large businesses dealing with particularly environmentally-conscious international markets.
