RED Electrical - Solar Panels in Whittle le Woods, Chorley, Lancashire - A Case Study
Roof facing south east
Having had a price already from one of our competitors, this customer asked us to quote to ensure that she was getting value for money. After our survey she decided to place an order with us.
The house has a south to south easterly facing tiled roof (22° from south) to its front elevation. The pitch of the roof is 37°. The design was complicated by the shape of the roof, as not only is it hipped on each side, but also has a large dormer in the centre.
The Roof Equipment
An array of ten CEEG Caymax 200W solar panels was designed. The layout is all in landscape with a row over the top of the dormer, and panels cascading to each side of the dormer. This was the best use of the available space, and was quite visually appealing too.
The Electrical Equipment
An EverSolar 2000GB inverter was selected for this installation. Installed in the loft, the equipment is pictured below:
In order to avoid trying to bring a cable from the loft to the consumer unit inside the house, we installed an armoured cable on the side wall of the house, with a dedicated weatherproof consumer unit for the solar equipment. The generation meter is located in the meter cabinet.
Total annual yield from system = 1753kWh, worth around £873 per year.
