Derwent Living

Project: Haselmere Court


Energy Consultancy
Project Details

Virtus were appointed by Derwent Living to undertake a feasibility study for the installation of photovoltaic array installations at their Haselmere Court development in Derby. Virtus provided a clear recommendation on the options available to the client based on agreed decision making criteria.

Virtus managed the implementation of the chosen solution and the installation of a 30kWp system which combined the best technical potential with acceptable payback period and return on investment. The new system provided the highest percentage of electricity saving (approximately 53%) and further befits included;

  • More independence from the grid and therefore lowered the impact of fluctuating electricity costs.
  • More flexibility in the installation of electricity consumer units in the future.
  • Higher guaranteed payments through the Feed in Tariff scheme.
