The Greyhound

62 kWp Solar PV system installed on the Greyhound Pub in South London.

A photovoltaic project in Sydenham, south London, which incorporates The Greyhound pub; a building listed to be of historic importance, has been undertaken by Ecolution, the UK’s leading independent renewable energy systems provider. The development is being completed for client Hexagon Housing Association and Ecolution is working in collaboration with the main design and build contractor following a competitive tender process.

Design is especially important on this installation due to the roof space being extremely tight and the entire project has to meet Lewisham Borough Council’s extremely strict 20% carbon dioxide reduction target.

62 kWp Hanwha polycrystalline modules are mounted on Ecomount self-ballast, therefore removing the need to penetrate the roofing membrane. Over 29 tonnes of CO2 will be off-set each year as a result of the Ecolution design.

Ecolution has been working with the building industry for over 25 years, providing renewable energy solutions for over a decade, with an expert team who have over 50 years combined experience in the design, installation and maintenance of integrated renewable technologies. Ecolution operates within the commercial and residential sectors, providing solar hot water systems, and solar photovoltaic systems.

Chris Bratherton, business development manager at Ecolution, says: “This has been an interesting project for us partly due to the historical importance of the pub but we have also been working to achieve a strict CO2 reduction target. This has meant that design and layout is vital – consequently we have used 90% of the available roof space.”
