Location: Alresford, Hampshire

Description of Works: Installation of 3 PV systems (ground and roof)

Duration: November 2014

Background:

Cherrington Beauworth specialise in the design and construction of high-specification domestic properties in and around the Hampshire area. Windmill Farm is a state-of-the-art home and will be a low emission and environmentally sensitive building set in the South Downs National Park.
We have worked with Cherrington Beauworth on a previous project in Andover earlier on this year.

Scope:

This project at Windmill Farm involved the installation of 3 separate PV systems consisting of:

• 1 x 7.8kWp roof mounted PV system comprising 24 panels
• 2 x Bespoke ground mounted PV systems totalling 39.2KWp comprising 120 panels

The total system peak generation is 47KWp. The panels are top of the range Sunpower 327w high efficiency modules connected to SMA inverters, with Tigo maximiser system installed which monitors each panel and ensures the highest possible system output.

Both the SMA Inverters & Tigo maximisers are networked back to their own front end monitoring units which are in turn connected to the Web which allows 24/7 off site monitoring and interrogation for each inverters & solar Panel efficiency.
