M3Solar is the 2012 National Fruit Show Bonanza Sponsor. The comapny have become a major supplier for the fruit growing industry having installed 50kw arrays at JL Baxter & Son and at F Edmed & Sons both based in Maidstone and F W Mansfield & Sons, Canterbury. The incredible prize is either a domestic 4kw solar array 16 panel system for a residential dwelling, which normally retails at £10,000 or for the first time they will be offering growers an alternative prize; £10,000 towards the cost of a 50kw system.
Marden fruit show society Chairman, Sarah Calcutt is delighted with the prize and M3 Solar’s involvement with the National Fruit Show. Over a 25 year period the total estimated value of the prize is £40,000. This incredible figure takes in to account the feed in tariff and savings on power, she believes this is by far the highest value Bonanza Prize ever.
