Spirit Energy Case Studies

Here you can find case studies for all the types of projects we've worked on. With over 2000 installs completed, we're immensely proud of the care put into each and every one. Take a look at some of our previous installations for inspiration.

Recent case studies

Hungerford, Berkshire - 4.3 kWp (Mar '20)

In March 2020, Spirit installed solar panels for Benjy Woolley, who was building his new home. As with most new builds or renovations, we recommended in roof panels and in this case fitted GSE integrated mounting. Integrated panels are more attractive, save on roofing costs and leave no space for nesting birds underneath.

Jungle Jungle - 30 kWp (Feb '19)

In February 2019, Spirit installed a 29.9 kWp solar system for Jungle Jungle, a children’s soft play centre in Andover. The pitched industrial roof allowed for 98 panels, which are optimised with a SolarEdge inverter to get the maximum performance from each module. Generating over 24,000 kWh per year, the system should allow for 80% on site usage with the remainder exported to the grid. Output can be monitored via the SolarEdge portal, and the installation is estimated to be paid off in 6 years.


Sugar Quay - 16 kWp (Nov '18)

In November 2018, Spirit Solar installed a 15.95kWp solar PV system for Haydon M&E Ltd at Sugar Quay London. The PV system utilises 58 polycrystalline JA Solar 275W panels mounted on a flat roof, using ballasted A-frames inclined at 10 degrees.  The annual output of the system is expected to be in excess of 14,000kWh, with the annual CO2 savings projected to be just less than 7,500kg. 


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 retro-fit (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 retro-fit (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 retro-fit (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.
