Sussex Cricket Club contacted us to assist with the design, supply and installation of a solar PV system on one of their buildings. This is the first phase of a larger project that will see the club reduce it’s carbon footprint, and energy bills.

Using one of the larger roofs on the site our team designed a 100kW solar PV array. This is mounted using our TRIC mounting system for trapezoidal roofs. We used 260 JA Solar 385W modules split across the East and West facing roofs. These modules feed into two 50kW Solis inverters.

As space inside the club building / indoor training area is at a premium we built a custom made enclosure outside of the building to hold the inverters and switch gear, ensure everything remains secure and protected from the elements.

This system is large enough to make around 2,946,000 cups of tea a year, perfect for a Cricket Club!


Ian, Operations Director for Sussex Cricket said;

Sussex Cricket working with Wagner Renewables, and of course in conjunction with what our planet can naturally provide, are now able to generate nearly 100,000 kWh of free energy every year. So in future whilst sitting in the sunshine watching the cricket rest assured clean, green energy is silently being produced in considerable amounts. 

It seems like a very natural partnership with many benefits to so many, I urge other cricket clubs to consider what you could do for yourselves and for the planet’s future too.
