31 Oct Solar PV Systems in Healthcare in Ireland
There are lots of positives with Solar PV systems, but one small drawback while we in Ireland are waiting for net-metering to catch up with the rest of the world, is that electricity is being produced on a Saturday and Sunday when nobody is in the premises. For hospitality and healthcare, where people are being looked after seven days a week, that electricity is never wasted. Solar PV is an ideal solution because thankfully, the sun shines every day of the year.
When Greentricity design solar PV systems we spend a good deal of time looking to match the system size to the electricy usage of the organisation as closely as possible. This reduces the amount of over-production and hence improves the return on investment timeline considerably. When a business closes at the weekend, there is a measurable amount of over-production we can’t do very much with because the battery technology isn’t affordable for these larger systems. However, in hospitality and healthcare, we see eThere are lots of positives with Solar PV systems, but one small drawback while we in Ireland are waiting for net-metering to catch up with the rest of the world, is that electricity is being produced on a Saturday and Sunday when nobody is in the premises.xcellent savings by introducing a solar PV system to their overall energy management. Buildings that work 24/7 and with a large footprint have the potential to generate enough from solar to cover 30-40% of their annual spend on electricity.
But where do you start? Start by understanding the potential from your roof. Without any cost or obligation, we can tell you the best size of solar PV system for your building as well as the best positioning on your roof. We do the calculations for you so you understand how much electricity you will save each year. It’s also possible you’ll have more roof space than you need, so when the time is right, you can add to your solar array and sell back to the grid.
