Solar Panel Case Study - PV 'in roof'

 

This interesting installation on a new ecobuild in Lewes, East Sussex combined solar PV, solar thermal and windows into one uniform roof surface. The system is MagaSlate (manufactured by 3S Swiss Solar Systems AG) and the various elements operate as large roof tiles thus dispensing with the need for normal weathering components.

The solar PV system comprised 22 x MegaSlate II monocrystalline 160W modules to give 3.52 kWp. These were connected to a SMA Sunny Boy 3000HF-30 EU inverter
