The project was completed by a solar panel company in Uckfield, “Energy Creation” in partnership with Viridian Solar back in January this year. The project consisted of 16 x 320W Viridian clear line fusion solar photovoltaic panels totalling a peak power output of 5.12kWp and will produce 5050kWh’s of electricity annually. Energy Creation is a solar installation company operating in Uckfield, East Sussex, as well as Surrey, Hampshire, Kent and Sussex.
The roof-integrated solar panel installation
The solar panels have been installed as part of the re-roof that was being done at the time. Installing solar panels such as these can help save money on electricity bills.
The in-roof solar panels were installed with a Solis inverter.
An inverter is used in solar PV power systems. They convert DC to AC and in the process reduce the amount of energy that is lost when converting DC to AC.
This particular inverter was manufactured by a company called Ginlong’s.
They also manufacture inverters for other applications outside of solar PV.
The inverter that was used was a Solis Inverter. Solis inverters are industry-leading and have been rated a Top brand for PV voted by installers in nine European countries and Australia.
The inverter will have to be replaced once it has reached the end of its lifetime but if it remains unused, then it can be donated to charity and used in another solar PV installation or sold on after its lifespan has expired.
In-roof Solar Panels
In-roof solar panels are also known as roof-integrated solar panels. They are mounted to sit flush or almost flush with the roof covering.
In-roof solar panels can be installed on sloped roofs with no particular special preparation required. This can be achieved by using manufacturers such as Viridian solar, GSE Integration and many more.
Installing solar panels in-roof makes a solar installation more aesthetically pleasing. In addition, replaces tiles meaning less area for the roofer and a saving on tile materials.
In- Roof Solar Panel Installation Details
The installation process of an in-roof solar panel system is fairly simple. The panels are mounted in place permanently and fixed to the roof of the house or business premises via a set of solar mounts and flashings installed on the roof in place of the tiles.
When it is not practical to install the solar panel’s in-roof, the solar modules are fitted on-roof with supporting racking that enables them to be tilted away from the roof completely for weatherproof protection during construction and subsequent maintenance operations.
