Our solar PV panels and roof integrated system (RIS) were featured on BBC’s X-Ray on Monday this week.
The building was designed by Cardiff University as part of the Solcer project, to produce an affordable carbon positive house. The integrated solar panels were manufactured with a transparent back so they could be observed from inside as part of the demonstration building.
Bespoke Solar PV panels designed and manufactured by GB-Sol have won the Solar Power Portal ‘Best in Show’ Solar Design Award along with installer Evo Energy.
Voted for by the public, the new award was created to recognise excellence in the field of aesthetics and design.
This week the BBC have been celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the UK’s longest running children’s TV show ‘Blue Peter’.
The Technical Team at GB-Sol are always thinking about energy but not always solar! Andrew and Bryn have taken to pedal power for their 20mile round trips to our Treforest factory, both enjoying the many cycle paths that link our workplace to their homes. Andrew charges his electric bike at work using our very own solar power, made and generated on site. Andrew says “The electric bike gives me a boost up the hills and avoids any congestion on the way to work”. GB-Sol have various ways of integrating solar PV and electric vehicle charging, contact us to talk about your project.
We are pleased to announce that GB-Sol have joined the Association of Environment Conscious Building (AECB).
It's a network of individuals and companies aiming to promote sustainable building. It brings together builders, architects, designers, manufacturers, housing associations and local authorities, to develop, share and promote green building best practice.
Our full-roof and integrated roof solar PV systems have been integrated into a number of passive houses and we hope that by being a member we can help shape the buildings of the future to make the most of solar.
For more information, see our information on their website https://www.aecb.net/welcome-to-our-new-members-7/

GB-Sol is proud to be supporting California Polytechnic State University’s (Cal Poly) attempt at breaking a world speed record.
Cal Poly’s PROVEN lab are targeting speeds of 65 mph in their solar car “Dawn” using only solar powered propulsion. Unlike commercially available electric or hybrid cars, "Dawn" has no batteries, no engines, simply 100% solar PV propelled.
GB-Sol recently completed the manufacture of 25 custom-made solar PV modules for the prestigious Blackfriars development in Central London.
Working with installer Avonside Renewables, GB-Sol were commissioned to produce the bespoke modules to enable a flowing shape to be made with the solar PV array.
Manufacturing in South Wales, we have 20 years’ experience in producing a range of solar PV products. Contact us for more details about this project or producing your own bespoke modules
Last night one of GB-Sol’s most ambitious projects was showcased on Channel 4’s Grand Designs.
Creating panels and mountings for such a unique curved roof proved quite a challenge but bespoke architectural solar is our speciality and producing aesthetic designs to compliment a building is what we do best.
