Stanley Library PV – Equans

    Stanley Library PV


    Stanley Library is based in the Metropolitan Borough of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England. A place to read, learn, connect and relax with thousands of books to choose from, free internet access and plenty of learning opportunities.

    Working on behalf of Equans, a provider of technical, FM, regeneration and energy services – with specialist capabilities in smart buildings, green mobility, district & embedded energy and decentralised renewables.

    The Challenge:

    As this was our first solar installation project for Equans, we wanted to take extra steps to ensure the clients aspirations were achievable with the design and installation. Throughout the project, we developed a great working relationship with Equans, gaining in trust with the system we proposed.

    This was a live site as the library was open throughout the project, meaning extra precautions were in place to avoid any incidents. This meant ensuring all sub-contractor labour, materials and equipment were in the right place at the right time.

    The Solution:

    Genco provided onsite project management supervision, to ensure that there were no disruptions with the everyday activities of the library. Dean, with his decades of Solar PV experience, was able to provide regular updates to our client offering piece of mind with regards to the installation.

    Utilising MCS accredited panels and inverters, we designed a system capable of providing data externally via public display screens. Highlighting the libraries and councils commitment to reducing their carbon footprint.


    The installation carried out by Heron Electrical (a sub-contractor known and trusted for many years) was completed well within the project timescale and to the required standard. The system is producing the required amount of energy leading to notable savings for the client.
