23.25kW Solar PV systems installed across multiple apartments in Camberwell, London.
Ecolution won the electrical and solar photovoltaic installation contracts for 41, one and two bedroom apartments across 3 blocks for Havil Street situated in the historical area of Camberwell, London just south of the expansive greenery of Burgess Park.
With the contractors being a family owned business, quality and service are very important which is why we were privileged to work with them on these elegant new apartments. Our dedicated in-house electrical team worked closely with the developers from initial site surveying through to design, supply and installation. We supplied a complete electrical package from initial site temps as well as 1st and 2nd fix through to final testing and commissioning. In accordance with secure by design the premises required a high quality comprehensive security system 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 co-ordination both on and off site.
Sustainability and affordable housing were a key driver for this project due to there being a mixture of private, shared ownership and Family Mosaic Housing Association owned properties. To meet the code for sustainable homes solar PV was chosen as it is not only quick and easy to install but also helps end users reduce their energy bills for years to come which in turn helps reduce fuel poverty in Camberwell. We installed a total of 23.25kW across the 3 apartment blocks using 250W polycrystalline panels on a flat roof mounting system. The solar photovoltaic systems across Havil Street are now collectively producing 20,832kWh of free electricity and offsetting 11,020.13kg of C0₂ emissions per annum.
After completion, we handed over the project to our dedicated in-house maintenance division who remotely monitor and maintain the solar PV assets for Family Mosaic. The smart meters installed provide half-hourly generation data and diagnostic information enabling us to view system performance and alerts if any faults arise, which would otherwise go unnoticed, minimising any losses. We also help manage Family Mosaics Feed-In Tariff to guarantee correct payments whilst also providing them with their own bespoke portal where they can log in and see their systems savings and performance.
