JCT600 solar PV installation
GMI Energy completes a multi site rollout of solar PV for JCT600 dealerships
JCT600 Multi Site Rollout
JCT600 Group, one of the UK’s largest and most highly acclaimed motor groups, chose GMI Energy to deliver a series of solar PV installations to existing dealerships for Audi, Mercedes and Peugeot.
Three initial sites for the multi-site rollout were selected following GMI Energy’s assessment of over 50 dealerships for their suitability to make the most of the solar PV technology. The GMI Energy team designed and installed three 50kWp solar PV systems to the roof of JCT600 dealerships for Audi in Lincoln, Peugeot in Bradford and Mercedes in Sheffield. The projects were all completed in a timely and efficient manner to coincide with Feed in Tariff deadlines, ensuring JCT600 would benefit from the highest possible tariff rate.
Ongoing monitoring of the systems shows that they are performing well and after a successful year of solar electricity production, JCT600 decided to invest in a further 50kWp solar PV for their brand new Audi dealership in York. Interestingly, the newest system is actually expected to generate a higher ROI than the original set of systems, thanks to a dramatic drop in installation prices.
