County Durham business now home to more than 2300 solar panels

One of the North East’s largest rooftop solar panel installations is now in place on a factory unit in Peterlee.

The new installation at drawer manufacturers BHK (UK) in Peterlee is the installation firm’s largest project to date and ranks amongst one of the largest rooftop installations in the North East with 2,344 panels and a staggering 1.3MW Solar PV power output.

Solar panels convert daylight to DC electricity, then an inverter changes the electricity to AC where it becomes suitable for use. Any unused electricity is either sold back to the grid or stored in batteries.

The system represents huge savings on conventional energy sources allowing larger businesses like BHK (UK) to make considerable savings and help towards a net zero target.
