Did you know that all of the energy in petrol and diesel came from the sun? We’re skipping the 300 million years it takes to make fossil fuels and harvesting new sunlight on our hybrid solar farms to provide instant clean energy.
GRIDSERVE solar farms are kitted out with all the bells and whistles. We use motorised trackers that follow the sun, bifacial panels and quarter-cut N-type perc cells so we can capture more light and harvest as much energy as we can.
We’ve invested in the best because the boost in efficiency means we’re able generate electricity for the lowest possible cost. That means we can then pass those savings on to our customers – win-win.
GRIDSERVE puts the conservation and enhancement of biodiversity at the heart of every hybrid solar farm development.
That’s because we know that the more species living in an ecosystem, the higher its productivity and resilience.
We look for low-grade agricultural land to build our solar farms and as part of the process we plant native grasslands and broadleaved woodlands.
This means that GRIDSERVE’s solar farms sequester more carbon than the land otherwise would – up to two thirds as much in some cases.
Clayhill is proof of concept for our Sun-to-Wheel energy ecosystem. Our 10MWp Hybrid Solar Farm generates 9.5GWh of clean energy every year for our Electric Super Hubs and Electric Forecourts®.
That’s enough charge to drive 16,711,408 miles.
There’s nothing more powerful or dependable than the sun. Here’s why we’re harnessing it.
The earth receives around 174,000 TW of energy in the form of sunshine everyday, which is 200,000 times the world’s total daily electricity needs.
With the right technology in place, solar projects can generate electricity more affordably than any other source of energy.
Thanks to hybrid solar farms with onsite batteries, clean energy can be generated, stored and shifted to wherever it’s needed at lightning speed.
We’ve got around five billion years’ worth of solar energy left but only 50 years’ worth of fossil fuels.
Building a solar farm leaves an insignificant carbon footprint and once built it can offset carbon emissions with the right vegetation.
