The Green Electrician Group has won a contract to supply three vertical PV facades for Irwell Valley Housing Association. Working for main contractor ISG, the project includes the installation of three, 16-panel, vertical PV arrays on tower apartments, providing electricity for use in communal areas.
The PV arrays were installed on flat walls, 13 stories high, using mast climbers. The design had to be aesthetically pleasing, combining black GB Sol panels with bespoke black aluminium mounting frame.
“We were pleased with the overall design which looks clean, modern and added to the overall impact of the front of the buildings,” said the Green Electrician Group operations director, David Young.
“In addition to providing a distinct, up to date look, most importantly they are generating free electricity for use in the building, and reducing carbon emissions.”
ISG’s site manager, Nick Galvin, added: “The Green Electrician Group had two weeks to complete the project, working alongside our own teams who were rendering the front of the buildings. This meant tight deadlines as we were both using the mast climber systems. They worked hard to finish each faҫade in the time given and the result is very impressive.”
