M3 Solar looks towards agriculture

From L-R: Shaun Beattie (M3 Solar), William Pierce (FG Pierce & Sons), Raffaele Fait (Eltek UK) and Andy O’Leary (Sibert Solar)
In August this year, M3 Solar installed and commissioned a 100kW roof-mounted PV system for FG Pierce & Sons near Sevenoaks, Kent.

The fruit farmers will use the power supplied by 408 Jinko 245p modules to help power its on-site cold-storage and packing units. To date the system is producing c.7MWh per month and provides 10 percent of FG Pierce & Son’s base-load power requirements.

M3 Solar worked closely with Sibert Solar and Eltek on one of the largest projects undertaken in the UK agriculture sector. According to M3 Solar, this sector is rapidly becoming one of the most active in terms of renewable energy utilisation and presents a growth market for PV installers.
