Project: Oakham Treasures – Agricultural Museum
Location: Portbury, West of Bristol.
System Size: 71 kWp
Predicted Annual Generation: 52,200 kWh
Predicted Annual CO2 Reduction: 24,126 kg
Return on Investment: 14.15 %
Summary Overview/Goals & Objectives/Result: Oakham Treasures is one of the largest privately owned museums of retail and farming history in the UK. Opened to the public for the very first time in July 2008, it has already become an award winning major attraction, and guarantees to give you an amazing and uplifting trip down memory lane. Owner Keith Sherrell obtained planning permission to extend the museum with a new building, but to obtain planning he had to provide 15% of his energy from a renewable source. Taking into account the orientation and angle of the roof Regensys advised an installation of 8 kWp. However, Keith was all too aware of increasing utility bills within the existing building due to the background heating system being power by electricity. Following a detailed consultation with Regensys the decision was made to install the 71kWp system. The system now provides a substantial amount of electricity to the site, reducing the bills and contributing to-wards a sustainable future.
Future: With a fantastic working relationship being built over the project, we continue to work with Keith and provide an O&M programme for his PV installation.
