Aston Farm, Bourton on the Water: 50kW Ground Mount

Mr Bullock contacted Mypower after a recommendation from a neighbouring farm. Mr Bullock was looking for a solution to cut grain drying costs, farm expenses and one which would provide a ROI. Following an onsite survey of the land and farm buildings, Mypower recommended a 50kW solar PV ground mount.

Work began on the farm in October 2012 and took just 5 days for the agricultural solar panels to be fully installed. Mypower took care of all the project management including the consent to connect to the electricity grid, structural survey, Energy Performance Certificate, system design, product procurement and supply, groundwork, installation, Feed in Tariff applications and forms and the Power Purchase Agreement in order to sell surplus energy back to the grid.

Customer quote

"It was important we found the best location for the panels. With Ben Harrison's advice we decided the best spot was a small paddock grazed by sheep which had easy access but wasn't an 'eye sore' to anyone. From start to finish Mypower were so professional and everything was delivered on time as promised". Mr A. Bullock
