E.ON has appointed TGE Group to install a 250kWp roof system on its flagship energy centre. The energy generated will be used to power 2,900 homes in the neighbouring village of Cranbrook, reducing carbon emissions by 82 tonnes a year.
The Energy Centre was designed with a curved roof that required a specialist mounting system that would not penetrate the roof. TGE Group designed and installed the 250kWp system using 1,063 Trina 235W solar panels mounted on a new system based on a Euroclad fastening, to maintain the warranty of the new roof.
Rupert Higgin, md of TGE Group, said: “This was a challenging project but one that shows how renewable technology can be adapted to any building in order to meet the client’s needs and their energy requirements. The energy generated will help power new homes and give a glimpse of how communities in the future will power and run their homes and businesses.”
