Some of the horrors of cheap installations

Some of the horrors of cheap installations – brackets should no be mounted on top of slates as they will crack with pressure leaving cracks for water to ingress. Notice to the right the un plugged pilot holes where the installer tried to find the rafter without removing the slate.

Here, a roof space measuring just over 17sqm has produced a system of 3kW peak - a 40% rise on a typical system covering the same area just a few years ago.

Here, the use of a very low profile mounting system has allowed solar PV to discretely blend into the background in this striking example of modern architecture. Using this low profile enabled the weight on the roof to be reduced significantly over traditional ballast systems. The roof covering was left un-penetrated and intact and with a lower rake the system produces a more consistent output.

BIPV

Built in PV produces a flush integrated finish rather than appearing to be an “after thought”. It is simple to install and easy for roofers to work round.
