Generate electricity that offsets peak cost.
Provide a hedge against rapidly increasing electricity prices.
Increase asset / rentable value of a building by improving the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating.
Meet Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) needs.
Electrical production is non-dependant on fossil or nuclear fuels.
Generate energy even in low light (overcast / cloudy) conditions.
Produce zero CO2 emissions.
Proven operational life in excess of 40 years.
The only cost-effective, widely accepted renewable technology that guarantees on-site green electricity production in an urban environment.
Grid tie inverters are used when the installation is connected to a utility supply. The grid tie inverter also synchronises the PV generator with the grid.
The PV modules can be mounted onto a range of Kingspan Insulated Roof Panels:
The PV system has been structurally tested in conjunction with all of the above insulated panel profiles. It is a top sheet mounted system, negating the need for through fixing, therefore eliminating cold bridging.
On flat roofs with up to a 3° incline, a lightweight, non ballasted mounting system is also available. The A-frame system requires no module row connectors, allows for effective roof drainage and is quick and easy to install. The system is patch welded to the existing membrane thus negating the requirement for through fixing or heavy weight ballasting.
The PV system can be installed on a wide range of roof systems and can be tailored accordingly.
The UK Government has created a series of renewable energy schemes designed to accelerate the UK’s development and use of renewable energy to achieve the UK’s 2020 target of 15% renewable energy supply.
The Feed in tariff (FiT) was introduced in 2010 to encourage small-scale (<5MW) low carbon electricity generation amongst businesses, communities and individuals.
The renewable obligation certificate (ROC) was introduced in 2002 to incentivise the deployment of large-scale renewable electricity generation, providing a 20 year guaranteed revenue linked to the retail price index (RPI).
