Eco Building Products ( has supplied the photovoltaic (PV) panels for an installation on the roof of the Deeping Medical Practice in Market Deeping Lincolnshire.

Photovoltaic panels produce electricity from daylight, generating useable power even on cloudy days.

Eco Building Products supplied more than 200 photovoltaic panels rated at 245 Watts and SMA inverters which together convert the sun’s energy into usable electricity. The whole scheme is predicted to generate 41,000 kWh of electricity annually, which will substantially reduce the practice’s bills for electricity from the grid.

Lark Energy (, part of the Larkfleet Group, oversaw the planning and installation of the project and installation of the panels.

Deeping Medical Practice will also benefit from the government’s Feed in Tariff (FIT), which guarantees payments for the generation of energy from renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaic panels.

The practice will use around 80 per cent of the electricity generated by the installation. The remainder will be exported to the national grid. The estimated income from taking advantage of FIT is predicted to be in the region of £13,000 each year while the predicted savings in energy costs will be in the region of £2,500 annually.

Deepings practice business manager Jo Kevan said: “The installation of PV panels at the Deepings Medical Practice means that the practice can generate significant savings in energy use over time, not simply in cash terms but also in terms of pressure on the environment.

“We can reduce our carbon footprint not only by generating much of our own electricity but also by selecting local providers to install our system.”

Ian Greenfield of Eco Building Products commented: “This project was a pleasure to work on as it will benefit the medical practice for years to come.

“The practice will benefit from the Feed in Tariff which will see significant reductions in fuel bills. Eco Building Products hopes to work on many similar projects in the near future.”
