THE BRIEF

With two residential properties in Aberdeenshire – one the family home and the other a rental – the client was becoming concerned at the increasing cost of, and dependency on, electricity and was looking at ways of safeguarding against potential spikes in cost in the future.

Living in the North-east of Scotland, they were unsure of the efficacy of solar energy but once they had researched the forecasted figures, they decided to go ahead with the install.

THE SOLUTION

Having successfully applied to the Private Rented Sector Landlord Scheme and on receipt of a Home Energy Scotland Grant and Loan scheme, the install began.

On day one, the team at i-Protech fitted twenty four 385w JA solar panels onto a ground mount system, 12 for each property.

The following week, a GivEnergy Giv-Bat 9.5 storage battery was installed at the client’s home, and both properties were fitted with a MyEnergi Eddi Solar Diverter, which converts excess power to heat stored hot water.

THE RESULT

Projections showed the client would save in the region of £1,385 a year on electricity for their own home, but so far generation has already surpassed monthly forecasts.

It was estimated that the annual savings for the rental property would be around £1,249.

The client said: “I would thoroughly recommend to anyone that they consider installing solar panels and battery storage. Throughout last summer, we barely used any grid power, and during winter the battery has allowed us to charge through the night on cheaper electricity and use this to offset a large portion of the house demand during peak hours. 

“We’ve been very pleased with the generation produced each month, and we’ve had no issues with the system and how it works. Working with i-Protech was very straightforward and the service form all concerned was very friendly. All information provided was well laid out and easy to understand.”
