  • 20 year benefit C. £91,496

The Client

With over ninety acres of woods, scenic walks and beautiful lakes, the multi award-winning River Dart Country Park is the perfect setting for all kinds of outdoor activities. With over 25 park attractions, children can rough-and-tumble over space nets, swing through trees on jungle ropes, or even capture a wooden pirate ship surrounded by water! Toddlers aren’t left out either with their Toddlers Beach and Playground, just perfect for tiny explorers.

With their multi-award winning camping and caravanning holiday park and elegant en-suite bed and breakfast accommodation at Holne Park House, the choice of holiday at River Dart Country Park is huge.

The Challenge

In 2018 we were asked to supply and install a 25.96kW Solar PV system onto the South West facing barn roof area. The installation was to be installed in time to enable the client to receive financial support under the Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) scheme.

The installation also had to avoid any disruption to River Dart Country Park’s customers.

The Solution

After an extensive site survey, IU Energy specified 88 x Talesun 295W moncrystalline Solar PV modules, connected to 1 x SolaX 30kw Inverter with electrical accessories, (including generation meter, DC/AC Isolators), mounted onto a SFlex Mounting system.

The DC cable entry and exits from the building were coordinated to ensure that routes were weather tight and minimised visual intrusion on the building. Cables as part of the system were fully enclosed in suitable containment dedicated for the system.

The inverter was wall mounted within the barn with metering provided and mounted within a separate enclosure fixed adjacent to the new main board.

Our service included assistance to River Dart Country Park with completing the FiT application forms.

The Results

The installation was delivered on-time, within budget and without disruption to the guests of River Dart Country Park.

The financial benefits are as follows –

  • £4,574.81 p.a. in FiT and Export tariff income
  • £91,496 total benefit over twenty years
  • System Payback 4.45 years
  • ROI 17.49%
