About Us

GB-Sol has been manufacturing Solar PV panels in the UK for over 20 years and have long and diverse experience in the industry, so we know our knowledge is probably second to none. Our RIS system (integrated PV panels) has won awards for its innovation and has been installed successfully for 20 years in many diverse and often bespoke projects.

UK Production at our Pontypridd factory means we provide a very green solution by reducing the delivery distances and through the use of recycled aluminium in our mounting systems. GB-Sol actually manufacture solar panels, not just assemble component parts. This makes us very flexible, providing support, design services, and bespoke products for the most challenging of BIPV or product related requirements. As an installer if you need our help, you can ask for our attendance at client meetings to show you have manufacturer backing from the start.

GB-Sol has been at the forefront of solar power generation for several decades. Today, we continue to lead in the application of solar through our stunning roof-integrated solar power systems, PV slates, solar carports and bespoke solar, . We manufacture custom solar panels and mounting systems for a wide range of applications; from BIPV, roof integrated systems (RIS) and architectural features, street lighting and water features, to marine. We thoroughly enjoy spending time on projects that are challenging and worthwhile.

GB-Sol also specialise in solar panels for housing developments. As a housing developer we can provide you with a complete one stop service by providing a design service/support through to introductions to accredited installers. We will then work with them to ensure they can provide your with all your requirements.

We also now have a 25 Megawatt capacity at our manufacturing facility.

Quality Speaks for Itself
All of our panels are made in an ISO9001 & ISO 14001 certified factory ensuring that they are of the highest standard; guaranteeing you gain the maximum output and the best value for money. With over 20 years of experience, we can actually show our products match our warranty claims. GB-Sol was also rated the top solar supplier in the Ethical Consumer magazine.

 

PV Slate has now been extended to a full roof system

 PV Slate is now available edge-to-edge. It is now almost impossible to distinguish GB-Sol's PV Slates from natural slates, as the system has been extended to be able to cover the whole roof.

GB-Sol first full roof PV Slate scheme has now been commissioned at Pilton Methodist Church Hall in Somerset, with the support of local architect Roger Barnes.  140 PV Slates were used, generating 3.85kWp of power and replacing 420 natural slates.  The system works with a Tesla Powerwall installed by our friends Solarsense for a complete solar & battery system.

PV Slate creates stunning roofs that have the look and feel of natural slate combined with the hidden electricity generating power of high efficiency solar cells.  PV Slates can also be fitted right alongside natural slates and come with a 25 year warranty.

Manufactured in Wales, the GB-Sol PV Slates have been designed and independently tested to withstand the extremes of the UK weather.  Popular with UK Local Authority planning departments, churches and listed buildings:  PV Slate is the perfect solution where aesthetics are vitally important.
