In January 2013 Enviko completed the installation of a 53.75 kWp solar pv system for Hurstpierpoint College. Located just north of the village of Hurstpierpoint, West Sussex, the college provides an excellent educational environment for over a thousand boys and girls aged 4-18.
Like many schools, Hurstpierpoint College were keen to reduce their current energy bills and to demonstrate their green credentials. Solar was the ideal solution as it represented a good investment opportunity thanks to the feed-in-tariff which would see them cover the cost of the installation in 6 years.
The system comprises of 215 Conergy PowerPlus 250M Noir edition solar modules split across three separate roof faces around the site of the College. Enviko installed 12kW on the Science block with plans to add another 11 KW array once the extension to the building has been completed.
The two south facing roofs of the St. John’s building make up the remaining 41.75 kW. The St. John’s building houses the sixth form students in their final years at the college and many of the boarders will now have a fantastic view of the newly installed solar array from their bedrooms.
The system will generate 46,118 kWh of green electricity for the school over the course of a year whilst offsetting approximately 24 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year.

The financial logic becomes obvious when you consider that returns on these systems can be as high as 15% and the obvious fact that traditional energy prices have risen far faster than inflation
