From September 2015 to February 2016 Spirit installed and commissioned Solar PV systems for 20 buildings spread out over Andover College, and Sparsholt College near Winchester. The arrays ranged from 32 to 400 panels on each roof. These all contributed to a total of over 2,500 BenQ 250W and BenQ 260W panels.

It was the largest educational solar PV installation in the UK at the time of writing.

The system was funded under a solar PPA, with Sparsholt and Andover College benefitting from cheap solar electricity.

The system was preaccredited so all systems could benefit from the higher 2015 Feed-In Tariff rate.
