PV Slate will again be exhibiting at Futurebuild. Please do come and visit us and let us know more about your projects. Our team will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about PV Slate, Infinity solar roofs or solar PV in general.
Futurebuild is at Excel, London and runs from Tuesday 7th to Thursday 9th March.
York Minster installs solar slates in historic first. The first time that solar slates have been installed on a listed building in the city.
PV Slate has a new stand at the National Self Build Centrre in Swindon.
GB-Sol's PV Slates are the "solar tiles" featured in Geoff Wood's amazing cantilevered house in Essex on Grand Designs - first shown in 13th October 2021.
Our solar panels also feature in the 2017 Blackdown Hills episode, on an amazing, curving, shell-shaped building with matching curved solar panels.
We are now fitting x338 of our largest solar PV Slates to Barnes Methodist Church in west London, discretely generating 12kW of solar power on this wonderful listed building.
The new roof can be seen from the B349 Station Road side of the church. The trustees of the church decided to use GB-Sol PV Slates after Richmond Council determined that putting conventional solar panels over the roof of this historic building was not appropriate
Project Etopia chose GB-Sol's class leading architectural solar options of edge-to-edge solar PV Slates and the Infinity solar roof, to power its carbon positive show home.
Empty Home Grants are available throughout the Valleys taskforce area to provide grants of up to £25,000 to complete renovations, with £5000 of this reserved exclusively for renewable energy measures such as solar PV.
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 designed a unique full roof integrated system for Arnold Gilpin and Associates. Using custom sized PV laminates to fit the roof dimensions, the whole of the South elevation was covered in solar in a modern and aesthetic array to compliment the Architects design.
The GB-Sol design engineer produced CAD drawings of the construction and PV panels with dimensions adjusted to meet the architects roof dimensions providing a full width, weatherproof array. Further liaison enabled us to develop specific flashings adapted from our standard designs to match the overall roof design.
GB-Sol produced a new roof for an industrial unit. Composing of 84 PV laminates, the fully integrated system provided the perfect roofing material, offsetting roofing costs with the savings on electricity bills.
The client required a full roof of solar PV to replace the existing material, they also requested a roof light as part of the array to provide natural light to an office space without windows.
