Better Planet has completed a 45 kW solar PV installation at Pooty Pools Farm in Essex.

The PV array was installed on a south-west facing barn roof with a pitch of 15%.

Utilising 234 panels from Amerisolar®

The installation is expected to generate over 40,000 kWh and abate over 15 tons of CO₂ per year.

The payback time is estimated to be around 7 years and the return on investment (IRR) is expected to be around 17%.
