The Olympus Power team are delighted to have been awarded Commercial Solar Project of the Year by Solar and Storage Live. 

Presented with the award by Krishnan Guru-Murthy, members of the Olympus Power team attended the ceremony in Birmingham, as part of the three-day Solar and Storage Live conference. 

The winning project was the Olympus Power roll out of 11 solar installations for the Cambria Automobile Group.

Simon Vassall, Commercial Manager: “I’m very happy to accept this award on behalf of our excellent team, with a project that shows the Cambria Group leading the way using renewable energy, for clean growth in their multi-site operation. It shows that solar works not just for the largest commercial sites, but is a winner for investment and the environment across different business models. Congratulations to everyone nominated, making strides in commercial solar and renewable energy across the UK.” 

The project showed a winningly efficient installation, excellent communication with each site combined with the expertise of commercial forecasting. All of the 11 sites featured will save more than the cost of the system in less than 4 years, with Olympus Power forecasting that 85% of the energy generated from the solar systems will be used at the sites.

Olympus Power believe that Cambria is one of the first multi-site auto dealership to be proactively driving down fossil fuel energy usage in this way. They would like more commercial chains in the UK to take up alternative energy systems to save CO2, with this example being a flagship for ambitious organisations across the country.

The team at Olympus Power provide total management – post installation the energy systems are monitored to provide performance reports and operational insights to Cambria on a site-by-site basis. This data assists with intelligent, long-term strategic business planning.

Olympus Power considers long-term partnership with clients an essential part of the services they provide. As well as reviewing energy usage and designing and installing solutions, they provide expertise and support in navigating the advances in technology and evaluating options for clients’ best interests.

Cambria chose Olympus Power for this project due to its expertise and reputation in the renewable energy industry. Cambria’s Group Property Director, Jason Button said “Solar for us – I can’t stress enough how much it has really changed our outlook on energy usage. It’s kind of a no-brainer. A case of ‘why wouldn’t you do it?’,rather than why would you.”
