The town of Whitchurch, located in the picturesque county of Shropshire, presented an excellent opportunity to harness solar energy and promote sustainability. In light of increasing environmental awareness and the desire to reduce carbon footprints, the homeowner approached JM Renewables to lead this solar power installation project. The project aimed to maximise energy generation by installing 28 420W all-black solar panels on the roof of a swimming pool.
The project began with a comprehensive site assessment to determine the feasibility of installing solar panels on the roof of the swimming pool building. Factors such as the orientation, inclination, and structural integrity of the roof were carefully evaluated to ensure a safe and effective installation. Our experts then designed a tailored solar solution that optimised energy generation while complementing the aesthetics of the building.
The installation process followed industry best practices and adhered to strict safety guidelines. A team of experienced solar engineers worked efficiently to mount the 420W all-black solar panels on the roof, ensuring minimal disruption to the swimming pool’s operations and the residents.
To maximise the benefits of the solar installation, an Eddi Hot Water Diversion Switch was integrated. The Eddi Switch efficiently diverted excess energy to heat water for the home, reducing the reliance on conventional energy sources and optimising the utilisation of solar-generated power.
As the heart of the solar system, a 10kW Solis Inverter was installed to convert the direct current (DC) electricity generated by the 28 solar panels into alternating current (AC). This AC electricity powers the house and the swimming pool’s electrical systems, ensuring a seamless supply of clean energy.
Installation & Outcome
The solar power installation on the roof of the swimming pool building in Whitchurch was completed within the projected timeframe and budget. The all-black solar panels on the rooftop added an aesthetic touch to the swimming pool area while effectively generating clean and renewable energy.
Residents of the house were delighted with the outcome of the project, with significant reductions in future energy bills while making a positive impact on the environment. The integration of the Eddi Hot Water Diversion Switch means any unused solar power can be used to top up the hot water tank, resulting in further energy savings and a more eco-friendly home.
The 10kW Solis Inverter, being the heart of the solar system, provides a stable and reliable energy supply to both the house and the swimming pool. This contributed to greater energy independence and resilience against fluctuating energy prices.
In conclusion, the 11.7kW solar power installation in Shropshire has proven to be an excellent example of the benefits and success of renewable energy initiatives. By harnessing the sun’s power, the system will generate £3,300 worth of free electricity per year and is expected to pay for itself within three years.
