Now fully commissioned , the system comprises 822 SunPower 345 Wp modules and 550 SunPower 327 Wp high efficiency PV modules , giving a total installed capacity of 463.4kWp .
SolarEdge inverters and optimisers are used to maximise the energy output from the PV system as parts of the array will be shaded at certain times of the day . The PV panels are mounted on K2 Systems aluminium frames fixed to timber kerbs and plate upstands integrated into the flat roof of the building and were carefully installed to ensure long term weatherproofing . The installation is expected to generate a minimum of 441,100kWh / year and save approximately 230 tonnes of carbon annually , equivalent to planting 760 trees each year .
