Integrated Solar for Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)
In 2013 GB-Sol designed a bespoke integrated system for a unique project, an impressive architectural Eco-House on an exposed coastal location in Cornwall. The project was awarded the Solar Power Portal Award for the Best Domestic Rooftop Installation up to 10kWp
As the site is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it was important for the architect to select a practical, weatherproof and aesthetic solution, as well as being visually acceptable by the local planning authorities.
Producing individual solar panels in the necessary triangular and trapezoidal shapes required by the design was essential to the project The solar panels were produced incorporating non-reflective glass to combat glare.
