Premier marinas swanwick first stage of our 4 part project for premier marinas at their swanwick marina. this first stage involved installing a 37.5kwp system on a new build industrial/boat storage unit with a metal seemed barrel roof. the metal seemed roof was rather tricky to deal with as we were requested to only walk on the seems and when the sun was shining brightly the roof reflects like a foil oven tray, making sunglasses to shield the glare as important as the rest of our ppe! (personal protection equipment). the fixings for this job were seem clamps which, as the name suggests, clamp onto the seems in the roof and as shown in the pictures the rails attach to these giving adjustable rail angle. the use of a chalk line, as seen in picture one, ensures a good straight start to the whole install. the final stage was to fix the panels on. luckily as the site is still mainly under construction there was a telescopic folk lift to raise the panel pallets up to the roof level, saving us the job of manually lifting panels one at a time. the larger the number of panels on an installation, the harder it gets to get them all nice and straight. if there is 0.1 of a millimeter out at the start this can end up a very big difference by the end of a 50 panel run! with a bit of juggling around the final result was three rows of 50 panels all beautifully in line and square on the roof, which can be seen by the pictures of the finished install.
Domestic install swindon this domestic installation in swindon was a beautifully easy one! the house was relatively new, about 10 years old. the roof angle was over 50 degrees but the modern tiles were nice and easy to work with and not covered in moss. the system comprised of 16 no. 'all black' 250w hyundai panels, totalling the limit on systems of this type at 4kwp. all the panels on this job were laid in 'landscape', and the rails are fixed to run up the roof instead of along. either way round, it gets easier to work on the roof as more rails go on. the sma inverter was placed on the end wall in the loft space on the same side of the house as the fuse board. the ac cable from the inverter was dropped down into the cavity, completely out of sight. our picture shows the cable coming out of an air vent in the external wall, which we used to find the cable, before sending it inside to the fuse board. we then reattached the vent cover. this customer also had an optimmersion unit installed. this is a clever device which diverts spare power from the solar panels into your immersion heater to heat your water for free while the sun is shining, making extra savings on your energy bills!
In roof system as we are now putting in more effort to add a few of the many installs to our 'recent domestic projects' pages, we thought it was about time we added an 'in roof' system to the list, or otherwise known as a 'building integrated pv system'. when we started installing solar panels 4 years ago there was maybe less than 10% of installs being 'in roof', with the main being traditional 'on roof' systems. this is now slowly changing to the present level of around 30% being 'in roof'. the trend slowly leans towards the in roof system as they do look far more impressive than having the panels sat above the roof on rails, as with the 'on roof' system.
