Integrated Solar Panels

Latest Integrated Solar Panels Installation

by

In May we installed our first integrated solar panels using the GBSol ‘Roof Integrated System’. In the ‘RIS’ system the 4mm glass laminates are manufactured separately from the supporting aluminium framework.  This enables non standard roof shapes to be accommodated and helps to maximise the area of roof available for solar PV.

In this installation the array comprised of 9 laminates, 6 x 250W and 3 x 125.

The first stage of the installation involves fixing of the aluminium framework to the roof  which is fabricated with a rebate to accommodate the 4mm laminates. The laminates are then secured in place via a riveted capping strip.

This system has been designed and installed to sit flush with the zinc roof of this bespoke ‘self build’ in north west London.

The array, with its different wattage panels required the use of the Solaredge inverter system which is ideally suited to arrays in which the output of panels may vary.

If you are interested in any of the integrated solar PV we can install please give us a call on 0800 0025833.

Sogosolar recently installed the solar PV system on the new build eco home of reknown designer and engineer Max Fordham OBE, which is shortlisted for the RIBA 2019 House of the Year. Designed by bere:architects and built to Passivehaus standards, a state of the art ultra low energy building standard, Max Fordham House will be featured on this weeks Grand Designs programme. Kevin McCloud described the shortlisted homes as “Modern-day explorers, boldy going where no house has gone before.” Max Fordham House is all electric yet virtually self sufficient, and thanks to the installation of a compehensive energy…
