L. M Porter, East Seaton – 156.25kW

 

Colliston Farms – 50kW

 

Newmill of Balgavies – 50kW

 

Easter Rattray – 50kW

 

D. A. Baillie & Sons – 50kW

 

Carmichael Farm – 45.25kW

Caber Energy designed and installed a combined system of 45.25kW for fruit and grain farmer Angus Porter at Carmichael Farm near Dundee. The installation is split between two sheds - both of which have their own inverters and the power will be used in the cold stores, grain dryer and the farmer's own home. The shed roofs face nearly due south and are expected to yield approximately 36,000kWh per annum . The predicted annual income/savings of the project will be circa £8,000 with an investment payback in under 6 years.

East Scryne Farm – 35.2kW

Caber Energy have been appointed by W H Porter, LM Porter and A Porter to install up to 400Kw of Solar PV capacity on a number of their farms in order to reduce electricity costs and to lower carbon emissions across their highly successful enterprises. The Packhouse at East Scryne is the first installation in this project - a 44kW scheme using Power One Trio inverters and modules from German manufacturer Axitec. The scheme should save approximately 375,00kg of CO2 emissions over a 20 year period and it is predicted that more than 80% of the output will be consumed on site. The high summer electricity demand of the packhouse fits perfectly with the high output from the solar panles during the summer months and installations such as this offer farmer's the maximum financial benefit and return on investment.

Burgie Estate - 50kW

Caber Energy designed and commissioned a 50kW scheme on the south facing roof of the Burgie Estate's main shed. The Estate is world famous for its equestrian events and this PV installation will feed the main shed and stabling blocks as well as 4 estate cottages. With a predicted output of circa 40,000kWh per annum - it will provide a good source of diversified revenue to compliment the equestrian business and the estate's other activities and will reduce Burgie's CO2 emissions dramatically.

Feddal Farm - 23kW

Owing to the single phase grid connection at Feddal, this installation was restricted to 23kW and comprises 92 Luxor German made solar pv modules and 4 SMA inverters. The predicted annual output of approximately 19,500kWh will help power the main farm house and office as well as the farm's main shed.

West Jordanstone Farm – 50kW

Caber Energy were asked by Peter Marshall & Co. to design and install a 50kW roof mounted solar PV system on the company’s new potato cold store. The shed roof faces south and is expected to yield approximately 40,000kWh per annum – the majority of which will be consumed on site – as the cold store has a high summer demand. The predicted annual income/savings of the project will be £8,500 with an investment payback in under 6 years.

Mid Derry Farm – 24kW

Caber Energy installed a 24Kw scheme in March 2013 on a south east facing general purpose shed at Mid Derry. The installation was carried out in plain weather – with snow, hail and high winds blasting the team from beginning to end. Happily, it was completed on time and is now powering the Farmhouse and a hungry electric aga!

Wester Cambushinnie Farm – 24kW

Another 24Kw scheme on a south west facing roof that is expected to yield approximately 20,000kWh per annum. This farm also has a 330Kw Enercon E33 wind turbine and is now producing the majority of its income through renewable energy.

Easter Craig Farm – 22kW

This 24kW system was installed on the cattle court’s south facing roof and will provide more than enough electricity to power the main farmhouse and worker’s cottage at Easter Craig – with excess electricity sold back to the grid. Output is expected to be approximately 20,000kWh per annum and the owner is already considering adding a further 24kW of capacity to the existing scheme.
