Project Overview

Completed in January 2022, this 162-panel, ground-mounted, system was developed and installed at Knepp’s brand new Wild Range facility.
No stranger to solar, Knepp Estate were keen to use some of their land to ensure their operations were powered in the cleanest way possible.
Covering less than 300m2, Knepp’s solar array will produce enough power to run 37 2-bedroom homes, and reduce their carbon emissions by over 17,000kgs per year, the same as taking 1.8million car miles off the road.

Client’s Comments

‘’As soon as the business decided to develop this site, solar power has been part of the conversation.

With plenty of space to work with, powering the new operation via solar power was an obvious choice; it would have felt wrong not to do this.

We’re excited to see what the future holds – we’re currently measuring how much of the solar is consumed on site and how much makes its way to the grid; we’re keen to ensure we’re maximising the solar energy available.

BeBa have surpassed our expectations, as a business they have seamlessly helped every step of the way and provided excellent customer service, and of course an effective solution to our needs’’

BeBa comments
‘’Knepp’s desire for solar to form part of this development was fairly unique.
When solar forms part of a new build/refurbishment, it’s not uncommon for it to sit on the periphery. With Knepp, however, solar was as important to them as everything else.
It’s would be easy to say that the decision to install solar is an economic no-brainer now but this project was developed and committed-to long before the energy price crisis.
For Knepp, this project went far beyond the financials.‘’
