GMC solar department installed this 3kw Solar PV Panels for home in Scottish Borders as part of a bigger contract.

With the most suitable south facing roof space covered with a old deteriorating asbestos roof, the decision was taken to remove the existing roof cover and dispose, cover the rood with a polyroof finish & 10 year warranty with purpose fixings for the PV system. While carring out this work GMC team replaced the facia & gutters with new white UPVC and the garage door.

The Solar PV system is 3kw which feeds the house free electric from the sun. The clients also opted to fit an Optimersion, a clever device which when fitted to any solar PV system diverts any excess power which would be wasted into the immersion heater in the water tank. This is an excellent way to make use of any energy produced while you are out the house.

The farm house forms part of historic mill buildings so the the clients opted for all black solar pv panels as these are more discrete in appearance and blend in with the roof covering. The solar pv inverter is manufactured by SOLAX comes with a 10 year warranty and built in wi-fi & connection for remote monitoring available direct through the SOLAX monitoring portal or by down loading the APP to your smart phone or tablet device.

GMC project managed this whole project for the client advising on all products and fitting.
