Solar PV Installed by Maximillion

144 Solar PV panels have been installed on Maximillion’s warehouse

 It might be the wettest quarter on record but that’s not dampened Maximillion’s spirit for installing an ambitious array of solar panels on the warehouse roof of our Edinburgh office.  144 solar pv panels were installed and commissioned in July creating a 36kw system projected to generate 25,000kWh of electricity each year. The system is connected to the grid so what every generated electricity we don’t use will be sold back to the grid.  Maximillion’s current consumption is just 10,000 kWh pa and so we will now be a net contribute to the grid.
