Installation of 131 roof-integrated Solar PV Panels for Grand Union Housing Group

08 July 2019Solar Photovoltaic

Bright Green are very pleased to have completed and commissioned a 131-panel, state-of-the-art roof integrated Solar PV array onto Bridgewater House in Brackley on behalf of Grand Union Housing Group

The roof of Bridgewater House retirement home in Brackley was in a terrible condition with ongoing leaks into the flats below. Grand Union Housing Group decided to replace the complete roof to alleviate the problems. This required the decommissioning and removal of 29 solar thermal systems and 59 old Solar PV panels. 

Bright Green Renewables designed a completely new Solar PV array to cover as much of the new roof area as possible and proposed the use of roof-integrated Solar Panels to better-integrate with the new tiled roof covering and to ensure water-tightness for many years to come.

The final design comprises 131 all-black panels which contrast very well with the new black roof tiles. The completed system looks far better than before and has been providing large amounts of "free" electricity into the 29 flats below - significantly reducing the energy bills and CO2 emissions of the property.
