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.
GB-Sol installs another striking edge to edge Roof Integrated System (RIS) roof, turning a new garage’s roof into a powerful solar generator.
GB-Sol is working within Government guidelines to minimise the effect of Covid-19, but we remain open to service the needs of our customers.
A recent addition to our portfolio of PV Slate projects is this garden workshop in rural Oxfordshire. On receipt of the project brief from the client, GB-Sol designed a PV system based on the dimensions of the new-build structure. The size of the building allowed for a 2.2kW system - modest but very effective for a building of this size. The PV Slate complements the Welsh Cwt-y-Bugail natural slate that borders the entire PV Slate array. The client selected a Solar Edge inverter and the entire system was designed, supplied and installed by GB-Sol.
GB-Sol has joined the Building Information Modelling (BIM) digital revolution by generating 3D models of our products; this enables architects to seamlessly integrate their chosen GB-Sol PV component into their drawings at the all important design stage.
Just to the east of Neath town centre lies Gnoll Estate Country Park, 230 acres of woodland and open space that is an important site for locals and visitors alike.
GB-Sol is pleased to collaborate with SolFiT to include the SolFiT Top Loader system in our portfolio of solar PV solutions. The SolFiT Top Loader is an innovative, ‘in-roof’ PV solar panel system designed and developed by a small and dedicated team of U.K. PV installation engineers and designers. It’s a great option for domestic and commercial new-builds and re-roofing.
As a long-standing and award-winning British design and manufacturing company, GB-Sol are adept at applying our extensive experience of research and development to the most challenging projects. Such an opportunity arose in 2017 in a collaboration with Leading Edge to provide off-grid remote power in the British Virgin Islands for support disaster relief charity Team Rubicon UK.
GB-Sol have just supplied their first replacement panels for a solar farm.
As technology for solar PV has changed rapidly over the last 10 years, sometimes when a module needs replacing, the manufacturer no longer makes that particular model.
Feed In Tariff rules mean that you are at risk of having your tariff revoked if you do not replace broken panels on a like for like basis. This can lead to difficulties when sourcing a replacement.
GB-Sol can cost-effectively create replacement panels with similar look and output to your originals, with mono or poly crystalline cells, 35mm or 40mm silver or black frame, white or black background to any specified dimensions.
Today marks the start of the Fully Charged Live show in Silverstone and we are very excited to be exhibiting there.
