527kW, Lincolnshire, Poultry

Solar PV roof mount installation on a new build poultry unit.

What was achieved

Westwood Energy installed 527.10kW of PV on this Lincolnshire poultry unit. Installed over three phases, we were able to mitigate disruption to the client but working closely with the shed builder and civil contractor, ensuring that relevant cabling and ducting was in place prior to our works commencing. The stage one installation was future proofed with the installation of a 630A Schneider panel board, which allowed expansion from 168kW up to 527kW over the proceeding years. Grid limitations of 400kW (max AC capacity) were easily mitigated using SolarEdge’s ability to “overdrive”.
