Euro Garages choose U Energy
The beginnings of what could be a very constructive and prosperous relationship with Euro Garages; one of the UK’s largest privately owned a forecourt operator has begun.
Euro Garages approached us keen to foster a relationship that would see U Energy install solar panel systems to many of their existing and future branches as they continue their company expansion. Uenergy was first tasked with installing a 40-module solar system on one of their Starbucks branches in Cleckheaton that all together would create an output of 10KW. Secondly we were given the task of installing a 30kW system on their Greggs branch just next door.
As the business adds strategic partnerships with large brands such as BP, Shell, Starbucks and Greggs; Euro Garages are forging ahead with their rapid expansion and their plans to become a major player in the forecourt industry.
U Energy were proud to help such a forward thinking company that realized the need to improve their energy efficiency and becoming more energy independent was key to the future growth of their business.
U Energy installed solar panels at BP Roundhay
The change has come!
U Energy provides more than it promises. In 2012, we took an initiative to setup solar panels at filling stations as filling station are best suited for solar panels. We did our first installation at a filling station near Pontefract. This installation was the first of it's kind that we are aware of, with special care being taken to ensure safe and secure installation through a system pioneered by U Energy.
Since then we are continuously working to install solar panels at filling stations. Recently we have installed solar panels at BP Roundhay, Leeds.The pay back calculation indicates that for this particular site the customer will save £425,199.03 over the next 20 years.
The sap calculation indicates that 71479 kwh per year is what the customer will generate from having the solar panels.The system size is 87kwp.
PV For Schools
Here we have a deal to make best use of your school’s roof, saving the environment and financial savings.
U Energy has installed solar PV systems for a number of large and small schools and knows what works best. School buildings in the state typically have relatively large roofs that could allow for solar photovoltaic (PV) systems capable of generating a significant portion of their annual electricity needs and cutting off their energy expenditure.
We have also installed LED lighting through schools which work efficiently along with solar PV to greatly reduce routine costs and the substantial savings allows administrators to invest in critical academic priorities. “This project will make our schools more energy efficient, eco-friendly and better for our students to learn and grow.
If you would like to talk about solar PV or LED lighting for your school please reach out now.
U Energy offer G59, DNO Witness and PAT Testing
have established a new branch, G59 Testers
, to provide commercial
and industrial electrical services. With expertise in renewable specific testing, as well as installation and monitoring, we wanted to share our extensive experience.
G59 Testers is one of a limited number of companies qualified to offer G59 and DNO (Distribution Network Operator) Witness Testing, as well as general electrical testing including PAT (Portable Appliance Testing). Our experienced engineers are able to offer a comprehensive service to ensure compliance is maintained during electrical installation for projects of all sizes.

Shell Spar Filling Station Installation
In 2013, U Energy installed a 29kW solar power system at Chellow Heights Filling Station near Bradford. The unique wave formation of the panels was calculated to give maximum yield on a sloping roof which would usually only have taken four rows of panels. The video shows the process, and a good overview of the site.
If you are interested in the installation of solar panels please get in touch. We are masters of the unconventional, and endeavour to ensure our bespoke systems maximise your returns.
BP goes green with U Energy
In late 2012, U Energy
undertook their first installation of a solar power system
on a BP petrol station
situated along a busy main road leading into Ackworth, near Pontefract. It is estimated that the system's installation
will result in a saving of around £16,300/year.
Solar is absolutely perfect for filling stations
as electricity is being used day and night by the pumps and infrastructure. Significant savings are guaranteed. This installation was the first of it's kind that we are aware of, with special care being taken to ensure safe and secure installation through a system pioneered by U Energy
.U Energy Solar
designed, supplied and installed the entire system, operating from their base in Huddersfield
. The project saw a total of 727 square meters of solar panels
, capable of producing more than 63,300 kilowatt hours of electricity per annum, installed across the canopy and store roof of the petrol station
The project used more than a kilometer of DC cable and saw 295 panels
installed using a Schletter mounting system. The system fed 4 SMA Sunny TriPower 15,000TL inverters and a single 12,000TL, installed indoors to convert the energy
to a useful form.
During the design and consultation phase, the technical team from U Energy
asessed the forecourt and in particular the roof and canopy structure, taking wing and weather into account, to create a system that would best capitalise on the station's location.U Energy
Director Farhan Gohir says "The Ackworth BP Station
has made a huge, yet wise investment. The have made use of an existing asset - their roof space - to both create green energy and also make a significant saving on what was previously one of their largest expenses."
U Energy are now undertaking further installations with BP across Yorkshire and further afield, with a number of sites confirmed in the midlands.
U Energy Installs Solar PV for Amir Khan
U Energy Solar
have recently installed a 3.9kWp solar PV system
for ex-Boxing Wold Light Welterweight Champion Amir Khan. Press release to follow soon.
It is estimated that the installation
will produce 3,425 kWh of power annually, resulting in a saving of £1318. Most importantly, the annual carbon benefit of the system will be 1.85 tonnes.
