A 150KW Solar Panel System has been installed at the new Lidl store in Kanturk. Installed by Enerpower, this system will greatly reduce the energy consumption of the store. The retailer who have traded on Banteer Road since 2008, replaced the existing store with a modern new build with sustainability in mind.
Throughout this project, the team incorporated a range of environmentally friendly features including an ISO 50001 certified Energy Management System, a solar panel system and 2 electric vehicle charger spaces.
The Solar Panel System installed by Enerpower, consists of 400 Longi 375w Panels. The panels have a high conversion efficiency, and have excellent performance providing power output on even cloudy days. The design of this system was completed in house by Enerpower Electrical Engineers. The installation took 5 days in total and was completed without incident or accidents. Whilst working on site, the team installed a fall arrest system to ensure full personal protection for personnel on site.
Also installed on site was a 1 no. Huawei 100KTL Inverter which has 12 strings intelligent monitoring as well as power line communication support. This inverter will provide a maximum efficiency of 98.8%. The installation of this solar panel system also allows for remote monitoring so the Enerpower team can ensure that there is maximum efficiency for Lidl onsite. There is also an instore display screen which will show the system performance, savings and environmental savings to Lidls customers and staff.
Speaking with Echolive, Lidl Kanturk Store Manager, Andrius Vasiliauskas, said the investment in the new store was “welcomed warmly by the community” with many excited customers eagerly enquiring about the new building over the past few months.
Enerpower are delighted to have contributed a small part to this new Lidl store and look forward to working with Lidl on many more projects in the future.
