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.
In April 2021, Spirit commissioned a Polysolar glass canopy installation for high street market stalls in West Bromwich.
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.
In January 2021, Spirit kicked off the new year by installing a 3.15kWp solar PV system for a client in Wokingham. Mr W had previous experience with Spirit on commercial projects and had been thinking about getting solar panels at his own property for some time. His key drivers were helping the environment and the return on investment.
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.
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.
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.”
In October 2019, Spirit installed the gorgeous limited edition red Powerwall 2 for a client in Northwood.
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).
In August 2019, Spirit installed its first zappi version 2 at a house in Reading.
In June 2018, Spirit installed and commissioned 6 Dual Socket EV chargepoints at St Giles Hotel in Heathrow, London.
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.
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.
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.
