Flat roof solution, St Ives
|Roof type||Flat roof with customised steel frame|
This house presented an interesting problem to solve: an installation on a flat roof.
To maximise the efficiency of the panels, we elevated them using a purpose-built galvanised steel frame which is fixed into the side walls of the building and rests on the roof using rubber feet. The system provides 100% of the home owner's electricity needs.

The home owner's objective was to offset all her electrical bill and carbon dioxide emissions.
The installation has been 50% funded by the Low Carbon Building Programme (LCBP) and 50% funded by the home owner.
