GMI Energy recently completed a solar PV installation for Vertu Motors (Vauxhall) at their brand new £2m dealership in Knaresborough, which was built by GMI Construction.

Due to the smaller size of a 'typical' commercial solar PV installation, Vertu Motors are entitled to claim the highest banding of Feed in Tariffs, meaning they will receive 14p for every kilowatt hour of clean electricity produced. At this size of system, they are also entitled to receive a further Export Tariff, which is deemed at 50% of the total yield, despite the fact they will be using 100% of the electricity on site. This will maximise the savings and revenue, whilst reducing the dealership's overall carbon footprint.

"The GMI team made the delivery of this project look easy and assisted with our direct sub-contracts as well." - A. Mitchison, Group Project Manager.
