16.75 kW Solar PV systems installed multiple apartments in Lewisham, London.
Ecolution won the electrical and solar photovoltaic installation contracts for 23, one, two and three bedroom apartments across 2 blocks and one commercial unit at Deptford Bridge situated on one of the primary roads leading into Lewisham town centre, London.
Ecolution were honoured to have won both contracts and work alongside such a prestigious contractor on these modern designed apartments and commercial building.
Our dedicated in-house electrical team worked closely with PDR Construction from initial site surveying through to design, supply and installation. We supplied a complete electrical package from full design site temps as well as 1st and 2nd fix through to final testing and commissioning. We secured by design due to the premises needing to have high-quality reliable security systems including door entry and CCTV. We also installed everything from fire, AOV and IRS across all three blocks.
Being awarded both the electrical and PV packages ensured smooth installation and coordination both on and off site.
Affordable housing and fuel poverty were a key focus for this project due to many of the flats being a part of a shared ownership scheme by Family Mosaic Housing Association. To meet the HA’s needs and also the builder’s regulations solar PV was a perfect solution due to it being a cost-effective renewable option which is quick and easy to install whilst also having the added benefit of helping reduce the resident’s energy bills for years to come.
We installed a 16.75kW solar PV system using 315W monocrystalline high-performance panels which ensured a larger system size whilst utilising roof space. It was installed on a flat roof 20 ͦelevation ballast mounting system.
The solar photovoltaic system at Deptford Bridge is now producing 15,008 kWh of free electricity and offsetting 7,939.23 kg of C0₂ emissions per annum.
