Hammerson plc needed to offset the Centres high consumption of electricity. They were looking for solar pV experts who were able to  handle a complex retrofit and who could work flexible hours around the Centres opening times in order to meet health and safety requirements. JTD were awarded the contract based upon their expertise and winning price. They carried out the plant room and electrical design, taking into account the existing building infrastructure for cable routes and containment. The main connection was carried out overnight and the system included smart monitoring to assist with O&M. This is the largest solar panel installation in Bristol of its kind in the City enabling the Centre to significantly reduce its usage of electricity taken from the gird.
