We’ve just finished this solar PV installation at this beautiful cottage in Market Drayton. What makes this install really special is that the panels have been seamlessly integrated into the roofing tiles, sitting flush with rather than on top of the roof as with traditional solar arrays.
To achieve this our team removed the roof tiles to expose the roof battens in the area where the panels were to be installed. They then fitted the innovative GSE roof mounting system to the batten, with flashing system to ensure the roof is weatherproof, before reinstating the tiles.
GSE Integration is an in-roof mounting system, allowing the building integrated installation of standard solar panels on new builds or roof-renewal properties. The system has the advantage that it fits with most solar PV panels available on the market.
Photovoltaic modules can be installed in all roof types.
The panels themselves are fitted with solaredge optimisers & an inverter to provide superior efficiency, optimise energy output & minimise shading. This clever design also means each panel can be monitored individually.
To make use of all their clean, green energy the customer also opted for an electric vehicle charger.
We installed the super ingenious & award winning Myenergi Zappi car charger along with their Harvi, an energy harvesting wireless sensor. This intelligent device allows the Zappi to be installed without the need for a hardwired transformer. To make this install fully ‘smart’ & to provide the other devices with internet we used the Myenergi hub which works with an app & allows the customer to control their system from anywhere in the world!
