Solar PV

C&K has a wealth of experience in solar PV installation for social housing, new build and commercial properties.

We work with Local Authorities, Housing Associations, Agricultural Organisations, Commercial and Industrial Organisations and our engineers are fully trained to the latest industry standards to ensure a high quality service every time.

How we can help:

  • Established solar team of system designers, structural engineers, electrical contracting division, project managers, quality managers  etc.;
  • Close working relationships with industry manufacturers and partners;
  • Infrastructure (warehousing facility, customer service contact centre, fleet of vans, H&S & Quality Management, in-house training etc.)
  • Systems/software e.g. AutoCAD, PVSol, Teds, PVSyst, electronic communication for test certification etc.

Education

Campbell & Kennedy’s award-winning team has a wealth of experience of installing solar PV to schools across Scotland, having installed to over 50 schools (figure at February 2017) to date. Solar is a fantastic way to inspire and educate the next generation while reducing electricity costs and in turn your building’s carbon footprint.

We have extensive experience in the education sector have worked on various building types including:

  • Universities
  • Colleges
  • Academies
  • Schools
  • Nurseries

We understand though that not all budgets can stretch to accommodate renewable energy installations, which is why we help by providing advice and access to funding. There are funding options that enable your organisation to have a solar system installed for free, whilst enjoying the benefits of reduced energy bills from day one.

 

Overview

  • Solar PV for free/rent-a-roof options available
  • Educational tool for practical learning

Ground Mount 

Most solar panels we think of are roof mounted but in many cases it is desirable to mount them on the ground. This could be because a roof is not suitable for some reason, or perhaps a better orientation can be achieved from a ground mounted system. Some properties choose to optimise surrounding land area to install a solar PV system. Panels are positioned on a tilt frame and oriented at around 30 degrees. This assures maximum solar energy absorption and output.

C&K manage the whole process, from initial feasibility studies, survey, design and finance through to the lifetime maintenance of the system. We will ensure the system is designed to gain maximum return on investment and is installed to the highest quality standard.

 

Overview

  • PV for free options available
  • Easy to clean and maintain panels
  • Protect your organisation against rising costs in a competitive market
  • Save on your energy bills and generate additional income
  • Increases your property’s value
  • Good public relations by showing corporate responsibility

New Build 

Solar PV systems generate renewable electricity/hot water, which reduces costs and energy consumption and helps new build properties to be more sustainable. With solar, you can better meet the required BREEAM rating for building warrants and provide a more attractive property on the market place via a high scoring Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

C&K’s fully qualified team works with architects, developers and main contractors to provide a complete turnkey solution, delivering the works on time and integrating seamlessly into the project.

On all projects we deliver on-time and liaise with other contractors to ensure that the works are well coordinated. Some examples of our clients include Bancon Construction, Balfour Beatty, Merchant Homes and City Building, to name but a few.

Overview

  • All new build homes are required to be zero-carbon by 2020 – more info here
  • Meet the required BREEAM rating for your building warranty
  • Achieve a high scoring Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
  • Solar can increase the value on a property and make it more attractive on the market
  • Residents benefit from cheaper energy bills

Installing solar panels to new build properties can help achieve a high scoring Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

Solar Car Ports

Solar carports are ground-mounted canopy constructions that stretch out over your car parking spaces. The canopy roof area is slightly tilted – offers a perfect platform for solar panels to be seamlessly mounted, which also adds to the aesthetics of the structure.

The tilted roof is not only beneficial for optimising the angle of the solar panels for energy generation, but it also offers natural drainage for rainwater which is then collected by guttering and channelled away. Electricity generated by the carports’ solar panels is immediately available to be used onsite.

All solar carports can include guttering, water management, LED motion controlled lighting, CCTV installation, advertising & branding and EV charging points.

LED

Switching to low energy light bulbs is one of the easiest ways to reduce your carbon footprint. We are increasingly seeing LED lighting replace conventional lighting in homes, offices, warehouses and street lighting due to their efficiency and low energy.

Our team can help you choose the most efficient bulbs for your property. Contemporary LED bulbs use up to 90% less energy than standard light bulbs and are tested and manufactured to EU standards to ensure that they are safe and efficient, helping to lower the energy required to power them and reducing your carbon footprint.

LED lighting can also help with achieving a high scoring Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) – essential for new build properties.

 

Overview

  • Protect your business against rising costs in a competitive market
  • Save on your energy bills and generate additional income
  • Good public relations by showing corporate responsibility
  • Reduce your carbon emissions

LED lasts up to 25 times longer than conventional light sources – guaranteed up to 5 years.

Energy Performance Certificates

An Energy Performance Certificate is required for properties when constructed, sold or let. The Energy Performance Certificate provides details on the energy performance of the property and what you can do to improve it.

We provide an independent, low cost, highly responsive personal EPC service at an unbeatable price. Instead of treating an EPC as just another certificate to be obtained, we see it as part of the vital process of improving the energy efficiency of properties.

Campbell & Kennedy provide the standard legal certificate needed, this is accompanied by a recommendation report and placed on the central register, with either an electronically or paper based reports sent out for your records.

Overview

  •  EPCs tell you how energy efficient a building is and give it a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient).
  • The EPC will also state what the energy-efficiency rating could be if improvements are made, and highlights cost-effective ways to achieve a better rating.
  • All domestic and commercial buildings in the UK available to buy or rent must have an EPC.

In the United Kingdom, all domestic and commercial buildings that are available for purchasing or renting have to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

EV Chargers

We only install electric vehicle charging equipment that has been through our rigorous testing and due diligence. When it comes to EV charging, reliability is everything – so we only install EV chargers that we’re confident won’t let you down.

We offer a range of domestic electric vehicle charging stations.

Choosing the correct EV charger for your business can be confusing. Knowing which charging stations, connectors and cable types depends entirely on your needs and the needs of your customers. Speak to us today to find out which EV solution is best for you.

 

 

 

Overview

  • Workplace: For staff and visitors
  • Fleet: For fleets and company vehicles
  • Public: For the general public
  • Rapid: For those in a hurry, available for private and public use

Having a charge point at the workplace will become increasingly important as a facility for employees and visitors, while for businesses with an EV fleet it can be an essential operating factor.

CircoSense

Campbell & Kennedy is the approved installer of CircoSense3000.

CircoSense3000 reduces the amount of energy currently wasted in secondary return hot water systems, which are installed in commercial buildings:

  • Schools
  • Hotels
  • Leisure Centre
  • Care Homes
  • Office Buildings
  • Shopping Centres

Without the CircoSense3000 device:

  • Pumps are constantly running unnecessarily
  • Boilers are fired more often than required
  • Results in significant levels of wasted fuel and high energy bills
  • Leads to high carbon emissions

How CircoSense3000 saves money and the environment

CircoSense3000 switches on your circulation pump only when required in two overlapping operating modes:

  1. Random request
  2. Look-ahead circulation

CircoSense3000 keeps “learning” constantly and continuously adjusts the look-ahead running times to the actual tapping times. If particular habits are abandoned, CircoSense3000 of course “forgets” them again, too.

This means that CircoSense3000 reduces energy consumptions in secondary return hot water systems by preventing the circulation of water at times of no demand, reducing energy costs of heating the hot water and lower carbon emissions.

In fact, if CircoSense3000 was installed in just 75% of primary schools across the UK, this would be the equivalent of taking 320,000 cars off the road!
