Recent case studies

Littlehampton, West Sussex - 8 kWp (Dec '21)

In December 2021, Spirit installed a complete renewable energy system for Ms B in Littlehampton - solar panels, battery storage and EV charging.


Cirencester, Gloucestershire - 10.5 kWp (Jul '21)

In July 2021, Spirit installed a solar PV and battery storage system for Mr C in Cirencester.


Oxted, Surrey - 6.6 kWp (Jul '21)

In July 2021 Spirit installed and commissioned a 6.57kWp solar PV system for Mr W. Having discussed his key drivers for the project were sustainability and system longevity, the most suitable panel manufacturer was REC. This is because REC boasts the lowest carbon footprint during manufacturing, the lowest known warranty claims rate of any solar PV brand, and has a very low cell degradation rate. Another important factor for Mr W was to maximise the monitoring capabilities. We therefore specified and installed a SolarEdge inverter with individual panel optimisers, which will not only help to achieve a greater system performance, but will also allow for module level monitoring in addition to a system overview of the current and historical energy generation.


Old Thorns Hotel and Golf Club - 217 kWp (June '21)

Over four weeks in May-June 2021, Spirit installed a vast 217kWp solar PV system at Old Thorns Hotel and Golf Club in Liphook, Hampshire.


West Bromwich High Street Market Stalls - 22 kWp (Apr '21)

In April 2021, Spirit commissioned a Polysolar glass canopy installation for high street market stalls in West Bromwich.


University of Worcester Arena - 100 kWp (March '21)

In March 2021, Spirit installed 100kWp of solar PV and around 100kWh of battery storage at the University of Worcester Arena, a high tech sports hall designed to be inclusive for wheelchair athletes.


Porter Garland - EVBox BusinessLine (Sep '20)

In September 2020, Spirit installed an EV charging station at Porter Garland’s offices in Camberley. The company had recently purchased an electric car, taking advantage of the tax benefits for businesses.


Ascot - Tesla Powerwall 2 (13.5 kWh) (Aug '20)

In August 2020, Spirit installed Powerwall 2 for a client in Ascot, Berkshire. We mounted the weatherproof battery and gateway on the outside wall of Mr B’s home, with the cabling going through to the distribution board inside.


Tonbridge - 2 x Tesla Powerwall 2 (27 kWh) (Oct '19)

In October 2019, we returned to a regular Spirit customer in Tonbridge, Kent to add an additional Tesla Powerwall and zappi EV charger to his home energy system. The previous year we installed a large 6.72kWp solar PV array and Powerwall.

The second battery will allow Mr C to soak up even more solar energy from the system on high generation days, as well as storing enough to power the home in a blackout.

Mr C said, “Spirit Energy did a great job with the installation. They were incredibly professional, helpful, and reliable. The Tesla batteries with the solar panels have saved me a lot of money.”


Northwood - Founders Series Tesla Powerwall 2 (13.5 kWh) (Oct '19)

In October 2019, Spirit installed the gorgeous limited edition red Powerwall 2 for a client in Northwood.


Nuvola - 1 x Rolec SecuriCharge (Dec '19)

In December 2019 Spirit installed a Rolec SecuriCharge unit for Nuvola in Swallowfield.


Maidenhead - zappi (Nov '19)

In November 2019, Spirit finished installing a complete system for Mr L in Maidenhead - solar PV, Powerwall 2, eddi and two zappi chargers.


Thatcham - eoMini Pro (Oct '19)

In October 2019, Spirit commissioned an eoMini Pro charger at a house in Thatcham.

Mr E went for the eoMini Pro to take advantage of the £500 OLEV grant for smart chargers. The unit is small and discreet, and offers full monitoring via the app (shown in the image above).


Reading - zappi (Aug '19)

In August 2019, Spirit installed its first zappi version 2 at a house in Reading.


St Giles Hotel - 6 x Rolec BasicCharge Dual Socket (June '18)

In June 2018, Spirit installed and commissioned 6 Dual Socket EV chargepoints at St Giles Hotel in Heathrow, London.


Bishop's Court - 46 Fitting Retrofit (2017)

In 2017, a private landlord contracted Spirit to upgrade the lighting in the communal areas of their property in Bishops Court, Slough. This consisted of replacing 46 existing fittings with a range of new LED lights.


NCR Bodyshops - 30 Fitting Retrofit (Jul '17)

July 2017 saw Spirit carry out a 30 fitting LED lighting retrofit for a commercial property in Newbury, Berkshire. NCR Bodyshops wanted existing highbay lights in their warehouse to be replaced with new 220W LED equivalents. 


Primrose Offices and Warehouse - 125 Fitting Retrofit (Jul '16)

In July 2016, Meika Ltd contracted Spirit Solar Ltd to install LED lights in its office and warehouse complex in Reading, replacing 125 existing light fittings and bulbs.

The new fittings range from 600mm x 600mm panels in the office and meeting rooms to 80W LED Corn lamps and 5ft tubes in the warehouse. 

Energy use will be reduced by up to 65%, with a total annual reduction in electricity use of just under 15,000kWh. The annual savings in running costs and replacement bulb costs will be £1,765+VAT; the project has a 3 year payback.

The installation will also improve lighting quality and reduce the need for maintenance of the lights. For example the panels give 35,000 hours service, which is 20 times the expected life of the existing fittings.
