Hager protects solar-powered goat farm

Meeting much of the electricity requirement of this goat farm is a 100 kW solar PV installation with circuit protection supplied by Hager.

Hager has supplied the circuit protection for a 100 kW solar PV installation at a goat farm near Shepton Mallet. The circuit protection consist of distribution equipment that includes a panelboard, meters, RCDs and IP65 TP&N boards.

Electricity is used on site to light the goat shed, as the goats are kept under cover, as well as in the milking parlour, where heated water is required for washing and an ice bank for cooling the milk.

Excess electricity is sold to the grid.

Mike James, electrical and engineering director with Brilliant Harvest Installations, comments, ‘I like to use Hager products in PV installations because the TP&N boards and panelboards have plenty of room, making them easy to wire. There is also good support from Hager and our local supplier, Edmundson Electrical in Yeovil.’
