St George’s Church – Surrey – 57.42kWp, SolarEdge & SolaSkirt (Dec 23)

Client Name: St Georges Church

Location: Ashtead

Project Date: December 2023

Introduction

St. George’s Church in Ashtead embarked on a solar energy project to harness clean and sustainable energy, reduce operating costs, and demonstrate a commitment to environmental stewardship. The project was awarded following a competitive tender process, highlighting the technical prowess, cost effectiveness and reliability of the proposed solution.

 

Project Overview

The project utilised 132x Jinko 435w solar panels (57.42kWp) strategically positioned over six roof elevations whilst taking into consideration the steep pitch of the church rooves.

To the five pitched rooves, the panels were mounted using K2 Solid Rail and plain roof hooks. Each hook position included Redtip hookstops to distribute weight effectively to the surrounding roof tiles elevating any potential stress.

These pitched arrays were all fitted with our SolaSkirt – both protecting the installations from nesting pigeons and providing a sleek black edged finish, hiding all cabling and rail.

The flat roof array was mounted to the lower stainless steel roof using K2 Solid Rail and standing seam clamps. This array was edged with SolaMesh to deter nesting birds and debris, protecting the system.

All 132 panels over the six arrays were fitted with SolarEdge S500 optimisers, providing panels level optimisation and monitoring. These were all wired back to a centrally located SolarEdge SE-50k three phase inverter.

The installation included a small display in the reception area, providing visitors with live statistics from the SolarEdge monitoring platform.

Conclusion

This 132-panel solar system stands out as one of our most cherished installations, delighting our clients with its impeccable finish. Anticipated to generate an average of 52,000 kWh annually, the system is poised to yield substantial savings, exceeding £13,000 per year. Additionally, the project offers the added advantage of potential income from exported energy, further enhancing its economic benefits.
