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 November 2020, Spirit installed a complete renewable energy system for a client in Cambridgeshire - solar PV, battery storage and EV charging.
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 July 2020, Spirit installed a huge 93.5kWp solar PV system at the West Reservoir outdoor swimming complex in Hackney.
In July 2020, Spirit installed solar PV at the Natural History Museum in Tring. The project was carried out during refurbishments at the Museum, so we collaborated with other contractors such as D+B Facades, who completed the new cladding on the building.
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 May 2019, Spirit installed this solar system onto a new green roof at a secondary school in London, to give the ultimate eco-friendly covering. We fitted 122 monocrystalline 305W panels for a high efficiency 37kWp system. It’s expected to produce 34,382 kWh and save the school nearly 18 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.
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.
