Commercial Case Study – PV Installation

South Gloucester Council – Kingswood Civic Centre

85 Solar PV Tiles installed and inset into a slate roof

The Councils remit was to install a range of Photovoltaic panels to the newly refurbished Kingswood Civic Center. This was a showpiece installation and is fully visible to the general public and from the main road.

The remit was to install a product which aesthetically blended in with the Marley Eternet type Slate roof tiles.

We used the Solar Century C21E inroof range of Photovoltaic tiles over a 30.85sq mtr area of roof space set in 5 rows of 17 panels. The energy yield from the system installed could be 3.78kwp which could produce circa 3400.00kwh/a.

Our scope of works also involved the DC electrical side, installed through Gregor Electrical and finally the installation of a Fronius inverter. The installation was completed in 5 days.

This case study demonstrates our ability to be able to organize and deal with a large scale Local Authority contract, completing it within the given time period and on budget.
