Wind & Sun designed a grid connected PV system for community workshops in 1998.
- Module type: BP Solar BP585 (40 x 85Wp)
- Inverters: 4 x SMA SWR700 (0.7kW)
The system was developed for Giroscope Ltd of Hull and is for community workshops including brewery, catering, carpentry and a recycling centre which uses an electric milk float. Costs of the PV system were covered by funding obtained for refurbishment of the workshops.
The PV System
The 3.4kWp Photovoltaic Array consists of 40 BP Solar 585L modules wired in four series strings and mounted on a framework above the existing tiled roof. Output is fed to four SMA Sunny Boy 700W inverters and then connected to the workshop consumer unit.
