Hawkins Motors is Cornwall’s longest established family owned car dealership group, with 7 dealerships across the County and expanding.

Hawkins Motors were keen to establish whether investing in Solar PV was worthwhile for their business. With a shift in the industry and an increase the sales of electric vehicles, there is more focus on Renewable Energy.

Solar PV provided a great financial return and also a statement of their commitment to renewable energy and a low carbon approach to business.

We designed and installed a 23.8 kW on roof PV system, making use of the expansive low pitch roof above the dealership. The system comprises of 56 Trina Vertex S 425w panels and uses 2 x Solax 15kW Hybrid Inverters, allowing for the ability for future connection of battery storage as requested by the client.

The electricity generated by the solar panels is used to power the showrooms, offices and servicing department, and has resulted in a 25% reduction in electricity costs for the company.

From the initial enquiry to the handover Richard and the team made it very easy for our requirements to be met and carried out the installation seamlessly and without any disruption to our busiest site, we are delighted with the results
