Solar PV panels with AmberGreen is the ‘intelligent choice’ says store boss

By Jayne Freer

YOU don’t need a degree in renewable energy to know that going ‘green’ is good for the environment and your purse – but it certainly helped for one department store boss.

Sunny Ghaie is the owner and managing director of Waterside Warehouse Ltd and has just fitted 80 solar PV panels to the roof of his 20,000sq foot store in Coleraine, Northern Ireland.

He is hoping that the switch to a 20kW Q-Cell solar PV system will help cut his £1,000 per month electricity bill.

He said: “I have a degree in renewable energy and it is something I am quite passionate about. It is also something I had been considering doing for some time and the finances seemed to make sense from a business perspective.

“We had already converted some of our lights to LED and, as the cost of that repays back, we are replacing more and more throughout the building. Solar PV was the next step for us.

“For anyone running a business they need to make sure the figures add up. I ran the computer simulation myself to work out whether there are returns and compared them with the estimates from Amber Green Solar, and came up with even higher figures, so I will be interested to see the returns this year.”

Melanie O’Hara, sales manager of Amber Green Solar, said: “Businesses of all sizes across the province are making the sensible switch to renewable energy. Not everyone has a degree in renewable energy like Sunny, but our team of consultants are on hand to help explain the finer points and demonstrate how it could work for their business or home.”
