Goat farm receives circuit protection for solar installation
Published: 14 June 2012 - Joe Bush
Hager has supplied a goat farm near Shepton Mallet with circuit protection for a large solar photovoltaic (PV) system.
The circuit protection consists of distribution equipment that includes a panel board, meters, RCDs and IP65 TP&N boards.
The photovoltaic installation generates a potential 100kW of electricity for the goat farm. Electricity is needed to light the goat shed, as the goats are kept undercover, as well as in the milking parlour, where heated water is required for washing and an ice bank for cooling the milk. Excess electricity is then sold back to the grid.
Mike James, electrical and engineering director at Brilliant Harvest Installations commented, “I like to use Hager products in PV installations because the TP&N boards and panelboards have plenty of room - making them easy to wire. Aesthetically, the products also work very well.”
