Wrexham Solar Firm reduces energy costs at luxury holiday park

A growing renewable energy company launched at the beginning of the pandemic is on a mission to aid holiday parks reduce energy costs and carbon emissions.

R-EV Power began offering EV chargers in early 2020 when Vaughn Rawson saw a gap in the market. Vaughn himself was looking for workplace EV chargers during the lockdown but found there were a few obstacles to overcome.

With the sale of EV chargers taking off, aided by government grants to help households and companies cut the installation costs.

With more companies looking to cut fuel bills and become greener it was the perfect opportunity.

This led to Vaughn employing 5 dedicated staff to run the business.

With a long list of big names under their belt on Wrexham Industrial such as Wockhardt Pharmaceutical who opted for multiple EV chargers, 4 single sockets and 2 twin socket EV chargers were installed that are visitor and staff use.

Other customers on Wrexham Industrial Estate include JCB Continental, Limpet Labels, V4B, Ash Waste, Hoya Lens and Bryn Roberts Workshop to name but a few.

Vaughn said “After the huge success we had with EV chargers, it seemed like a natural progression to expand into other renewable solutions such as solar panels, battery storage, air source heat pumps and infrared heating.

This was where Rawson Solar – – was born. Headed up by Vaughn’s daughter Millie Rawson along with Gregg White, and 4 other dedicated individuals. They are a team dedicated to reducing carbon emissions in and around the Wrexham area.

“We hope to see real growth in this area with renewable energy and electric vehicles having started to take off with the 2050 net zero targets in place.”

“We created Rawson Solar in early 2022 and have already installed over 10,000 solar panels on homes and businesses in and around the Wrexham area, we only see this side of the business getting busier and busier.”

A recent install completed by the Rawson Solar team was at The Plassey Holiday Park in North Wales A luxury 5-star holiday park nestled within 250 acres of woodland within the Dee Valley, North Wales.

The Luxury holiday park approached Rawson Solar looking to plan for a renewable future while protecting themselves from the uncertainty of electricity prices by reducing their reliance on the grid, while reducing their carbon emissions.

The holiday park installation consisted of 188 x 410W solar panels across three separate roof spaces, generating around 65,000 kWh of electricity per year. Enough to provide more than 25% of The Plassey’s overall electricity consumption.

John Brookshaw managing director of the Plassey had this to say about the installation: “We were delighted with Rawson Solar who carried out the installation of a 77kWp solar PV system across 3 separate buildings.”

“From our first call to request a site visit to Rawson Solar quoting the system, all the way through to commissioning. The process was swift, smooth and extremely well-coordinated!”

“The highly competitive price beat all other quotes, with the installation of the system completed to a tight timeline with minimal disruption to our business.”

“We are now looking into the next phase with the installation of multiple EV charging points with Rawson Solar without a doubt being our first choice.”

Gregg White, Rawson EV Technical Director, had this to say about the installation of more EV charging points in Wales: “EV charger availability within Wales is not as good as it could be. But with government grants such as the EV infrastructure grant now available. We hope more Welsh businesses will follow The Plassey’s example taking advantage of the funding options available to them.”

R-EV Power And Rawson Solar are part of the Rawson Group. Which includes a very successful photocopying business Rawson Digital –
