Product Design & Manufacture

Got a new idea that needs a PV panel to power it? We can help you by designing a panel to fit your product and to match the electrical requirements of your system.

There are many products that require a small amount of power to operate them, and cannot be connected to the electricity grid because of remote location or the cost of connection.

We have been making PV systems for specialist equipment for decades and have vast experience of the operation of PV-battery stand-alone supply design. The sizing of the battery and PV modules are vital in ensuring that a system will operate successfully for a long lifetime. The choice of voltage for the system, the optimisation of energy use, and the confidence factor required for the job are all important factors in this process.

 We manufacture panels using many different materials and can provide a shape and size to match the product on which they are mounted. We have designed products for use in many environments including, marine, urban, industrial, high altitude and high latitudes.

 We have a wide range of test equipment and can verify the operation of prototype systems in many simulated conditions.

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.
