56 Solar PV Panels and Air to Water Heatpumps installed

We are the appointed Mechanical & Electrical Contractor installing renewable technologies Solar PV Panels and Air to Water Heatpumps for a new build development in association with Halsall Construction. This consists of the Housing Associations new Head Quarters and 6 two bed houses at Rooksbridge, Somerset.

Housing Association Head Quarters

The single story U shape Head Quarters is heated by two Mitsubishi Ecodan Air to Water Heatpumps supplying underfloor heating throughout, with an Air to Air Heatpump to allow cooling of the Boardroom area.

Helping to offset the heatpumps running cost is Twenty Schuco Photovoltaic Monocrystalene 190 watts peak panels installed onto the south facing roof elevation. These produce an output of 3.8kwp with an annual generation of circa 3.375kwh/a. They are installed in a single row on two strings.

6 Two Bed Properties

Each properties heating and hot water is provided via a 5kw Mitsubishi Ecodan Air to Water Heatpump installed at the back of each house.

To assist with the electrical usage, Six Schuco 190 watts peak Photovoltaic Monocrystalene panels have been fitted to each roof which link back through an inverter unit to the main consumer unit. These can generate just under 1.2kwp yielding 865kwh/a per annum, per property.
