Reading-based Photon Energy has marked the installation of its biggest order with the completion of a £1.2 million solar PV system at BSkyB’s Building 2 in Osterley, West London.
Now fully commissioned, the system comprises of 822 SunPower 345 Wp modules and 550 SunPower 327 Wp high-efficiency PV modules, giving a total installed capacity of 463.4 kWp. Solar Edge inverters and optimisers are used to maximise the energy output from the PV system as paerts of the array will be shaded at certain times of the day. The PV panels are mounted on K2 Systems’ aluminium frames fixed to timber frames and plate upstands integrated into the flat roof of the building.
The installation is expected to generate a minimum of 441,100 kWh/year.
