Forster were offered the ideal platform to showcase their combined roofing and solar PV service on a mixed Barratt Homes East Scotland development of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses and apartments in Edinburgh.
Solar Century 265Wp SunStation in-roof, interlocking panels have been fitted in conjunction with Russell Highland, Anthracite roof tiles on the first of three social housing apartment blocks. Five of the twelve arrays (one, eight panel 2.12kWp, two, six panel 1.59kWp and two, four panel 1.08kWp) have been installed to-date. Given the long roof elevation, careful consideration of the array spacing was essential to tie in with the roof tiles.
The arrays will provide power to the apartment block communal areas, including corridor and stairway lighting.
