Sambrook House Residential Care Home

When Sambrook House Residential Care Home was looking to renew energy contracts, the team discovered that they could reduce costs and cut their carbon emissions by installing solar PV.

The 13.42 kW system installed by Geo Green Power is delivering cost effective energy for the care home and saving 5.1 tonnes of CO2 a year.

Sambrook House Director Neil Robson said: “The environment is becoming a real issue and something we care passionately about, so reducing the amount of carbon we put into the atmosphere was important.

“In January I began negotiating the next 3-year electricity tariff and the best I could achieve was a 28% increase. We were using well over £1000 per month, so I was looking at a steep cost increase unless I investigated an alternative.”

Geo Green Power were recommended to Sambrook House by a previous customer. The Shropshire care home needed to ensure that their renewable energy installation caused minimal disruption for their 28 residents, visitors and staff. Clear access routes had to be maintained for emergency services and deliveries and they needed a firm that could deal with the industrial environment and a three phase electrical power.

Neil added: “The solar installation is delivering significant savings. We use a lot of electricity throughout the day, and I knew that we would use everything that we generate from our panels so every kW is offsetting what we would have purchased from the grid.

“The installation process was very slick. I am delighted to say that Geo Green Power have a great team of people who are all very hardworking craftsmen. The best accolade I can give about the system itself is that I don’t notice it’s there!”

Having seen the impact the solar installation has had on their energy bills and carbon footprint, Sambrook House are keen to replace their heating system with a more eco-friendly solution, such as a ground source heat pump, to further reduce their carbon emissions.
