Project Description

This demonstration project involved the installation of a 300kw PV system at Kingspan's Castleblaney site. The project aims to demonstrate and promote the benefit of solar PV for self consumption at commercial and industrial sites, to demonstrate an innovative funding model for solar PV which sees a third party own and operate the PV system in return for a per-kWh payment from the customer and demonstrate an innovative data management environment, SMARTLIFE, allowing comparative research into the performance of the PV system, and intelligent predictive maintenance of the system.
