Astro Lighting is a progressive lighting design and supply business with high quality products distributed across the globe. With a commitment to British lighting design and a passion for quality and precision, Astro’s creative ethos has remained consistent throughout – that good design demands simplicity.
Astro’s management team were very keen to utilise the the extensive roof of their new design and distribution facility in Harlow to offset their carbon footprint.
Solar Voltaics analysed the site electrical loads and presented several options of system size, costs and anticipated savings. The selected approach was to size the solar PV system to produce the same amount of renewable energy each year as the facility used.
The scope of work included the grid connection application, planning consultation to confirm the installation was permitted development and liaison with the client’s landlord to ensure they approved the work.
Two X 60KW Solis inverters were used to convert the DC power to AC and Solar Voltaics managed the installation, commissioning and DNO connection approval of the installation.
