Ground mounted solar PV scheme wins Sustainability Award

ground mounted solar pv 50kWp

A 50 kWp ground mounted solar PV project installed by JPCS has won an award for the ‘The Best Large Scale Renewable Energy Scheme’ in Cornwall earlier this month, at the 10th Cornwall Sustainability Awards.

The Cabilla Manor project, commissioned by author and explorer Robin Hanbury-Tenison,  was completed in August 2011 and has already generated around 45,000 kWh worth of energy in the first year.

The ground mounted solar PV scheme was installed using the innovative JPCS Groundscrew, which enabled the installation to be completed despite challenging conditions.

Around 200 guests attended the event in Falmouth to celebrate the awards’ 10th anniversary and the sustainable achievements of businesses in the region.

Organised and part-funded by the Environment Agency and Cornwall Council, the aim of Cornwall Sustainability Awards is to encourage, reward and gain recognition for some of the excellent work businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are doing to improve their sustainability.

JPCS is the UK’s largest installer of ground mounted solar PV, with over 20MWp worth of energy installed over the last two years. As well as energy, JPCS also delivers services to the highways and rail markets.
