This project is a two stage installation. The first phase is the temporary installation of a solar array until such time that the array can be permanently fixed to a summer house due to be built in the near future.

For the temporary installation we used our TRIC F Duo mounting. Usually used for flat roof installations it is also suitable for ground mounting. To create a stable platform for the array to be mounted on we used railway sleepers, these act partly as ballast, but also raises the array off the ground slightly. Further ballast was also used.

The modules our customer chose were the JA 300 all black module, highly efficient and long lasting. Each panel was optimised using Solar Edge, in conjunction with a SolarEdge HD Wave inverter. This will also give viability of each module when connected to WiFi. The electricals were mounted in a temporary outdoor box.

Once our customers new summer house is built the whole array will be moved to a purpose built roof, with the inverter and other electrical parts also being moved to inside the new building.
