Who are they?
Limpet Labels based on Wrexham industrial estate is a self-adhesive labels manufacturer who has specialised in the production of digital labels since 1992, they use state-of-the-art digital presses to make a wide range of digital labels.
Limpet Labels were looking to plan for a renewable future, by reducing their overall electricity costs and their reliance on the Grid. Due to the state-of-the-art machinery that is used for the production of the labels they consume a huge amount of electricity daily. Because of this, they were looking for a way to reduce these costs, while also looking to protect themselves from future electricity price increases due to the uncertainty of the energy market.
In order to meet the energy requirements for Limpet Labels, we first needed to complete a full site survey. The site survey allows us to produce a full detailed installation plan. This ensures that we are installing the Solar PV array in the most efficient locations, the helps to maximise the power that can be generated and minimises any disruption to our client.
At Limpet Labels we installed a 90KWp solar PV system. This system consisted of 222 x 405W solar panels, along with 2 x 50kW inverters, these are used to convert the DC power which is generated by the solar panels into AC power which can then be consumed by the client.
On this installation, our expert team arranged each panel in the most efficient location ensuring they used the available space wisely avoiding any skylights which need to remain uncovered.
All solar panels and inverters used for this installation work with a handy app or an online web portal, this allows our client to check on the operation of the system from anywhere, ensuring the system operations without any issues.
Benefits to the Client
The system we installed at Limpet Labels has an average generation of around 75,000 kilowatt hours of free electricity every year, with the ability to sell any excess back to the grid for an additional income. Not only is the client now able to generate their own electricity and feed excess back to the grid, but they have also reduced their Co2 output by 13,000kg per year.
This system will save Limpet Labels thousands over the 25-year output warranty of the solar panels. And will pay for itself in the long term with the electricity savings.
The installation at Limpet Labels was completed in a few days, this was possible due to the detailed planning that came from the full site survey, which helped to reduce disruption to the business. As the solar panels have little to no maintenance the system will stay in top condition for many years to come and comes complete with a 25-year output warranty for complete peace of mind.
‘Our company made the decision to invest in solar panel technology and selected Rawson Solar to carry out the installation, we were already a happy customer of the Rawson Group through EV chargers and office printers, but we could not have been more impressed with the Solar Panel investment. From the initial consultation to the final installation, the team at Rawson Solar was professional, knowledgeable, and efficient.
Not only did they provide me with an accurate estimate of the cost and time required for the installation, but they also found the right solar panels that would work best for our energy needs. The large installation of 222 panels took just ten days to complete and had zero interruption to our daily operation.
Since the installation, our energy bills have decreased significantly, and we are benefitting from a source of clean, sustainable energy. I would highly recommend Rawson Solar to anyone looking for a reliable and successful solar panel installation. Their expertise and professionalism made the entire process stress-free and exciting.’
