25.75kw Commercial Solar Panel Installation Leek-Knights Care Logo


Knights Care Limited have been named in the top 5 fastest growing businesses of the region in 2014, so installing a Commercial Solar system seemed like the next logical step for the young, forward thinking company. Owned and operated by Adam Knights, Knights Care is fast becoming a leading example for the rest of the care industry to follow.  Due to 24/7 electrical consumption, Solar PV was chosen as a perfect solution to an ever growing concern regarding the rising cost of electricity. At the Abbey Court care home our experienced Custom Solar team maximised the available roof space installing a 25.75kw system across the multiple tiled roofs, which meets a massive 80% of the home’s demand throughout the day.


“Matthew Brailsford, Managing Director of Custom Solar provided me with all the financial information needed for me to make my informed decision to install solar on my care homes. The financial benefits are easy to see, and with my particular installation it meant that I was cash positive from day one. Another very important reason for installing solar was for future protection against ever increasing energy prices. Custom Solar have been incredibly professional all the way through from start to finish and I cannot recommend them enough”
