RIVERSIDE HOUSING PROJECT

Riverside benefit from huge savings in their energy bills through a ZERO COST Solar PV System installed by Engenera

In November 2016, Riverside Housing installed 850kW of Solar PV across three new build PFI sheltered housing developments in Hull. This was one of the largest PFI rooftop solar PV installations in the sector.

The installation will reduce their “annual” electricity spend by approx. £52,000 whilst also drastically reducing site carbon emissions. The installation consisted of various roof and mounting types – flat roof/ballast & pitched roof.

Total savings over 25 years – £2,560,000
Carbon Reduction – 330,936 kgCO2


Dealing with the environmental concerns of our tenants and home owners drove us to consider installing Solar PV. It makes a lot of sense financially as the system was free and we are seeing a dramatic reduction in our clients energy bills

RIVERSIDE

Whilst carrying out research Engenera found the Riverside Project was a perfect candidate for zero cost Solar PV. Even though the property was not perfectly South facing, Engenera took into consideration the following characteristics of the building:

  • Pitch
  • Azimuth
  • Orientation

Engenera approached Riverside to explain their offerings and the savings that they could achieve through the installation of renewable measures. Through a pricing matrix Engenera illustrated to the client that by fitting a 850KW system at ZERO cost they could save Riverside an average £88,000 per year.



Our zero cost option means businesses profit from free installation, zero operation costs and no ongoing maintenance fees. Through our Power Purchase Agreements, businesses will purchase the green generated electricity and benefit from a significant reduction on mandatory Climate Change Levy charges.

The installation and ongoing maintenance really does cost businesses nothing and offers real financial savings on billed compulsory charges together with lower electricity bills year on year.

HOW DOES ZERO COST WORK

We take all the information collected from the survey i.e. the pitch, azimuth and orientation of the roof and input this into the Photovoltaic Geographical information System set by MCS and are provided with the yield of the property. The yield is the yearly sum of global irradiation that will hit the PV modules. The yield we were provided for Newcastle Business Village was 848 Kilowatt hours. Using this figure and the system size (180KW) we can figure out how many KWh’s Newcastle Business Village will produce each year. For example, if you are being charged 10p per KWh, Engenera will charge only 6p per KWh giving Newcastle Business Centre a saving of 4p per KWh.

Mark Reed, Managing Director at Newcastle Business Village says
“The project was a statement that NBV wanted to play it’s part in, cutting carbon emissions” and added “We deal in the futures of young businesses so the environmental concerns were one of the things that drove us, and it also makes a lot of sense financially as the system was free and we are seeing a dramatic eduction in our energy bills. The installation was seamless and non-intrusive”.
