Brightwater Gardens, Saxby

An array of solar panels in Brightwater Gardens.

The owners of Brightwater Gardens approached Amelio Solar Energy on recommendation from another of our customers in Lincoln. 

Brightwater Gardens (previously known as The Garden House) is a visitor garden situated in the village of Saxby. It occupies an outstanding site which is 21 meters above sea level on an exposed hillside with a south west facing perspective. Whilst it has traditional elements, it is also a modern and innovative 21st Century garden. This innovation is also coupled with a particular awareness of the environment. 

In the spring of 2013 the owners decided to develop a new Mediterranean garden with a theme of heat and sunshine. The garden needed to be constructed in time for the forthcoming summer and in May of that year they looked to Amelio Solar Energy to provide them with an environmentally friendly and sustainable energy source for their new project. 

Amelio Solar Energy installed 16 ground mounted Romag Mono solar panels on the site which will offset more than 2 tonnes of carbon a year and delivers over £1,000 in bill savings and income from the Feed-in Tariff. 

The garden is a popular visitor attraction and so it was particularly important to pay attention to the aesthetics of the project as well as the practicalities. The owner was extremely pleased with the service, the panels themselves and the interest they generated from visitors. 

In 2017, the owners re-contacted Amelio Solar Energy and as a result a Solar i-Boost was installed to provide hot water heating from the solar panels from the spare solar electricity.
