This Acton solar panels installation was a particularly interesting one. Sogo Solar were asked to install an integrated solar PV system to this modern new build with an aluminium roof. The dimensions of the roof required a bespoke design to achieve optimum yield for which GBSol Laminate panels lent themselves perfectly.
We constructed an aluminium frame first, then installed the 6 x 250W and 3 x 120W laminate panels into it, each fitted with Solaredge optimisers feeding the inverter.
SoGoSolar is an Advanced Accredited Installer of SolarEdge, an inverter system which results in each panel being electrically independent. This confers a number of benefits over conventional string system inverters including:
- Improved energy yield due to lower losses from shading and module mismatch as losses are restricted to the affected panel rather than the whole ‘string’.
- Real time and historic performance data at both module and system level.
- Safe DC mode. On the loss of AC power, only 1Vdcis generated per panel.
- Market leading warranty terms of 12 years for the main inverter.

“Project managing the self-build I dealt with many difficult and frankly rude suppliers but Ben was a joy to work with. We love the way the finished roof looks with the integrated solar PV system. Ben has helped us to build our energy efficient dream home.”
