This Council Solar Power Project presented a number of unique challenges, for which Solgen Energy was able to develop an innovative design and construction methodology. Some of the key challenges have been:
Solgen developed a symmetrical design that not only delivers high electricity yields but also visually blends in well with the complex roof structure. Shading issues were mitigated and an efficient string layout implemented.
Solgen assisted the council in large parts of the GCA negotiation process. Our client was presented with the completed agreement for final review and signature.
