Challenge

The challenge of the project was to help cut the company’s electricity running costs in one of their distribution centres, and to increase the sustainability of the organisation.

Foodbank also required the ability for the system to expand to battery storage system if required in future.

Solution

With this in mind, the client required a 300kW system on a tight roof and some spare space allowance for future expansion. LG recommended the 315kW LG NeON® 2 solar panels.

Although Foodbank operates from a large purposebuilt warehouse, future plans for a battery storage system meant that roof space needed to be preserved. The LG NeON® 2 panels have a high efficiency output per m2, which made them the ideal option to help offset a substantial proportion of the organisation’s energy consumption.

In 2018 an additional 50kW of LG NeON® 2 – 330W were installed on the spare roof space.

Why Were LG Panels Chosen

The installer recommended LG solar panels for their proven performance and reliability.

LG NeON® 2 models have been involved in a number of comparison tests, in a watt per watt comparison, against many other brand panels and are consistently amongst the best performing panels. The LG NeON® 2 panel generates more power per square metre, and is able to deliver more electricity per square metre than a conventional panel of the same physical size.
