Client Name: Private Client
Project Date: March 2023
In Watersfield, a private client embarked on a forward-thinking journey towards sustainability, energy efficiency, and energy independence by undertaking a transformative solar installation project. This case study highlights the successful deployment of a solar system, featuring 18 JA 385w Solar panels, GSE In Roof mounting, SolarEdge S500 Optimisers, a SolarEdge SE5000 inverter, and a SolarEdge Battery for energy storage. The project involved complex installations on multiple elevations and a sleek solar system integrated into a slate roof, exemplifying the client’s commitment to clean energy and innovative solutions.
Client Objective: To harness solar power, reduce energy expenses, and achieve energy independence with a clean and aesthetically pleasing solar system, while accommodating complex roof elevations and integrating an energy storage solution.
Total Panels: 18 x JA Solar 385w Panels
Panel Type: Monocrystalline
Mounting System: GSE In Roof
Optimisers: SolarEdge S500 Optimisers
Inverter Type: SolarEdge SE5000 Inverter
Energy Storage: SolarEdge Battery
Roof Type: Slate
- Complex Roof Elevations: Installing solar panels on multiple roof elevations required precise planning and execution.
- Aesthetically Pleasing Integration: The client sought an aesthetically pleasing solar system integrated into a slate roof.
- Solar Panel Integration: The 18 JA Solar panels were securely integrated into GSE In Roof Trays and fitted with the SolarEdge S500 Optimisers, seamlessly blending with the slate roof’s aesthetics.
- Inverter & Battery Setup: A SolarEdge SE5000 inverter, and SolarEdge 10kWh Home Battery were integrated into the system to facilitate efficient energy conversion, management and storage.
- Commissioning: Rigorous testing of the system ensured reliable energy production, storage, and real-time monitoring capabilities.
- Roof Works – Our team replaced the entire ridge on the main house.
Energy Production: The 18-panel solar system generates an average of 5000kW annually, significantly reducing the client’s reliance on conventional energy sources.
Cost Savings: The client now saves approximately £1600 per year on electricity expenses (Taking into account potential export payments), ensuring a rapid return on investment.
Energy Independence: The SolarEdge Battery provides energy independence, allowing the client to use stored energy during peak demand or power outages.
Aesthetically Pleasing Integration: The solar system seamlessly blends into the slate roof, enhancing the property’s aesthetics.
This solar installation project in Watersfield exemplifies the client’s commitment to sustainability, energy efficiency, and energy independence. By adopting advanced solar technology, including JA Solar panels, SolarEdge optimisers and inverter, and a SolarEdge Battery, the client has not only lowered energy costs but also seamlessly integrated a sleek solar system into a complex slate roof. This project serves as an inspiring example for homeowners seeking to reduce their carbon footprint, lower operational expenses, and enhance their property’s value through sustainable and innovative solutions.
