As the need for renewable energy sources and storage increases then so does the need for suitable switchgear. Electricity generated by solar farms and stored in batteries is DC, which is typically harder to switch than equivalent AC systems. LCS have significant experience with DC systems and are ideally placed to support the renewables industry.


LCS, under the Carville Brand have been supplying LVAC switch panels to many hospital trusts. Security of supply is critical in these applications, depending upon reliable changeover panels, often with the option of two DNO supplies and emergency back-up generator

Government & Commercial

We have supplied many LVAC switch boards to a variety of government buildings, institutions such as universities and to commercial premises. A key selling point is the ability to accommodate new switchgear into existing buildings often with limited space and access. Please see attached time lapse video of such an installation
