Local School Learns About PV Slate Installation

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.

The Biggest Solar Panel Yet

This week, GB-Sol succeeded in manufacturing the largest module in its 20 year solar manufacturing history.

GB-Sol are always keen to take on any challenge and producing a panel bigger than ever before was especially interesting. Each panel measuring 3.1m x 1.4m was composed of two layers of 6mm glass. They weighed over 120kg and required specialist equipment to transport around the factory.

Each one contained 90 solar PV cells providing 425Wp.

If you have any unusual solar PV requirements, GB-Sol are here to come up with a solution. Please get in touch today.
