Businesses leading change: Magnetic Shields chooses TLGEC

With the energy crisis making to speed up our transition to green energy, it’s not just individual homeowners, but businesses stepping up that has the potential to really shift attitudes towards solar energy. 

Magnetic Shields, a leading specialist on the production of magnetic shield material (Mu-Metal), recently came to TLGEC to install a commercial solar pv system on their new factory project in Staplehurst, Kent. TLGEC provided designs that would help to reduce their significant energy demand.

The system specified was designed as a whole roof installation, featuring 460 SunPower Maxeon 5 430W Panels, providing 197.8kWp (which is to say working at maximum capacity for an hour nearly 200 kilowatts of power could be produced). The system also featured a Solar Edge inverter and optimisers. 


Commercial Solar PV system for Magnetic Shields


Shortly after the installation on the new factory was completed. Magnetic Shields asked us to design systems to fit all other viable factory roof areas, forming a phase two to this project. This comprised of four different roof areas to provide an additional 83.36kWp, again featuring SunPower Maxeon 5 panels and a SolarEdge inverter with optimisers. 


Magnetic Shields benefits from lower energy costs thanks to their TLGEC Commercial Solar PV system

Following their commission in January, Magnetic Shields is already benefitting from the supplement to their energy only months later. This goes to show that installing Solar PV needn’t be a headache; TLGEC are here to help you and support you through the process of installation and beyond. 

Magnetic Shields Commercial Solar PB Update:

Shortly after we completed the new factory installation mentioned above, Magnetic Shields asked us to design systems to fit all other viable factory roof areas with commercial solar panels, this has formed Phase 2, 3 and 4 of the projects and comprised of five different roof areas and a ground mounted system to provide an additional 135 kWp of solar of the site. These systems have now been installed and are operational.
