JPCS has provided the foundation for the UK’s largest ground mounted solar farms made up of 18,000 solar panels.
Working in partnership with energy efficiency solution company Anesco, JPCS supplied 4,760 Groundscrews to the 5MWp solar project on the Cadland Estate in Hampshire. This 30 acre project will generate enough electricity to power 1,000 homes.
Steve Helliwell, director at JPCS, commented, “Our system removes the need for excavation and concreting. Where you would usually cast small concrete pads, Groundscrew can be used instead.
“This came as a real benefit for the project as installation took place during the wettest June on record since 1910. The whole project would have been held up if installers had to wait for dry weather to pour the concrete. Using Groundscrew meant we could complete the project on schedule.”
Adrian Pike, CEO of Anesco who designed and managed the project, added, “Solar, along with the other technologies we deploy, are all key to creating a sustainable and mixed generation capacity for the UK, which is vital as we tackle the need to reduce carbon emissions.
“The site at Cadland blends different energy efficiency technologies together to bring the greatest benefit. It is not only helping to reduce emissions but is generating green energy, while creating jobs and long term revenue streams.”
