Local School Learns About PV Slate Installation

Friday, 22 February 2019

This week, GB-Sol had a special visit from pupils at Hawthorn High School. Working with Newydd Housing Association, they are designing a digital bench at a Pontypridd Church. It will provide a sheltered place for the homeless to sleep, and include USB charging facilities powered by solar.

The students brought along their roof frame and GB-Sol’s PV Product Manager, Lloyd Symonds, taught the school pupils how to install the PV Slates. These were fixed to the South elevation with natural slates on the opposite pitch.

A special charging pack was designed including two USB ports and an LED light. This will be connected to a battery to allow use of the electricity outside of daylight hours.

GB-Sol work on all sorts of unique projects, if you’d like our can help with yours, please get in touch.
