October is always a busy time in the solar industry, and here at Ethical Power it is no exception. With two 50Mw sites breaking ground before the end of the year and 3 sites reaching FAC. The construction team are hitting their stride as they continue to deliver high quality projects on time and to budget for our customers.
As we move towards the winter months, with lower power generation, attention of our O&M team focuses on park maintenance. Testing and servicing electrical equipment are a priority to ensure the best possible performance of assets under management when optimal generating conditions return in the spring and summer.
At Ethical Power we have been proactive in meeting the challenges of the future. Supply chain difficulties have the potential to cause problems in the sector for years to come. Using our enhanced buying power to deepen existing partnership agreements with British and European manufacturers and suppliers we are at the forefront in securing supplies of critical equipment.
This month also marks an exciting time as we open our new office in Bristol, doubling capacity, to become our operational hub. The expansion will accommodate new members of staff alongside existing highly experienced construction and development teams. Bringing these teams together under one roof in a modern, open plan workspace ensures we are ready to meet the growing demand for solar.
