The Chairman of Carradale Community Trust contacted us to get more information on solar PV and battery storage. Carradale Community Trust has been operating as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) for the benefit of communities within the area. Therefore, they wanted to maximise the roof space of their community shop and post office as part of their sustainable plan for the future and extend the value of their community shop.

We always want our system to run for a very long time and provide peace of mind for our customers, which is what Carradale Community Trust also wants for their shop. Following the thorough consultation with Mr Leighton, we decided on 8.25kWp Solar PV system with SunPower Maxeon 3 375W all-black with SMA inverters and Tesla Powerwall battery storage. 

The shop has just been reopened in 2021 with the support of the village and community trusts around the area. It is extremely important for them to assess the options carefully and decide on the best one for the benefit of the village and communities. The community trust ultimately appointed us to do the installation and was very impressed with the quality of products, workmanship, and services they are getting. Mr Leighton continues to provide us with great feedback. We are ecstatic that everyone is happy and everything is working well for them.
