Norbar Torque Tools 531 kWp Solar PV Installation

In early May 2022, We installed a huge 530 kWp solar PV system at Norbar Torque Services based in Banbury, Oxfordshire. The system consisted of a massive 1180 Longi solar panels as well as half the amount of P950 optimizers. We also installed two different types of inverters in this project as the system was so large, these inverters are the Solaredge 66.6k Manager and three  Solaredge 100k Managers.

The system is estimated to produce 464.78 MWh of energy every year, which will provide clean, green electricity for Norbar and support local community energy projects. The system is also helping the environment massively by reducing its carbon footprint by 108.29 tonnes, which is equivalent to 4,974 trees being planted.

The health & safety and environmental manager (Ian Broome) at Norbar Torque Services had this to say about our installation team.

“I would like to make you aware of the excellent way in which Dave Cowley and his team have worked whilst at Norbar. From the moment we were introduced Dave has always considered health and safety as the priority, understanding and welcoming our role and ensuring at all times we were briefed. This was also reflected in the way his team worked as well.

Dave always had the time to talk through any issues and finding solutions, managing sub-contractors and ensuring they kept high standards of health and safety.”

Low Carbon Hub

Low Carbon Hub helped massively in this project by raising the funds for the installation. They are a social enterprise that’s out to prove they can meet the energy needs in a way that’s good for people and good for the planet.

They develop community-owned renewable energy installations across Oxfordshire that not only produce clean energy but accelerates the transition to the zero carbon energy system we need for the future, providing electricity, heat and a clean transport system, all powered by renewables.

The installations also produce an ongoing income, which is reinvested in further carbon cutting projects. They help local organisations become more energy efficient, fund green innovation, and back further community energy projects. They make every pound of investment work hard to bring our vision of a smart and fair energy system to life.

They are at the heart of a growing partnership of people and organisations across Oxfordshire, working together, for a low carbon future.
