Our Working Energy Centre


It is often beneficial for potential customers to see the renewable technologies we offer working in situ. If you would like to visit our Renewable Energy Centre, please call us on 01743 718003 so we can book you in for a guided tour. This is a great way to learn more about these renewable technologies from our experts.
Below is a list of the renewable technologies we currently have on site.


Ground Mounted System

This 10kW ground mount installed by our team, consists of 44 Schuco 235w Photovoltaic panels, mounted on a Schuco frame. The frame allowed us to face the panels directly south at 30° to ensure maximum benefits. The energy produced by the panels is converted from DC to AC current by 2 SunnyBoy 5000TL inverters installed by our electrician. The inverters are located next to the panels in a weather proof hut, built by the ESP Energy team.

Solar Thermal

The barn also has a Solar Thermal system installed to run the hot water during the summer months. The system consists of a flat plate collector which is mounted in to the roof, which involved removing the roofing tiles and setting the panel into the roof and sealing all around it with a flashing kit.

Solar Array

A 400kW Solar array has been ground mounted at the Energy centre, consisting of 1,509, 265kW Canadian Solar panels. The system took several weeks to install and was completed by our own team of PV fitters and electricians. The team built a small weather proof building in front of the array to house the inverters. The  majority of the electricity produced is fed back into the grid. 

Battery Storage System

The battery storage system installed consists of two 2kW batteries, one master unit and one slave unit, the system is modular, so at any point more ‘slave’ units can be added on to increase the volume of storage. 

Car Charging Points

Coming soon to the ESP Energy Centre... two electric car charging points available for public use.

Biomass Boiler

The most recent installation is a domestic ETA PU 11kw biomass boiler, this has replaced the previous twin heat boiler to heat the offices. This boiler is the perfect size for our space and runs on wood pellets.

ETA PEK 35kW biomass boiler installed to provide space and water heating. The system is fuelled by wood pellets.

Air Source Heat Pump

This air source heat pump (ASHP) is currently being used to heat an outdoor swimming pool. We will soon be installing another ASHP which will provide our offices and warehouse with hot water and heating.

Roof Mounted System

We have a 10kW roof mounted system which provides our office and warehouse with free electric. This 10kW system consists of 48 Schuco 235w Photovoltaic panels. The energy produced from these panels are converted to AC current by 2 inverters, a SunnyBoy 2500HF-30 and a Fronius IG Plus 7000
