The photovoltaic panels are fitted to the flat roof of
this residential apartment block using a innovative mounting system which enables
the panels to be fitted without making any holes in the roof or by adding any additional
ballast to weight them down. The mounting system is designed and manufactured by
a UK company and uses sophisticated aerodynamic design to ensure that the panels
stay on the roof even at very high wind speeds.
The panels have been fitted to the building at Loxford Road to meet the planning
requirements of the 'Merton Rule' for 10% onsite renewable and have successfully
deliver over 10% of the buildings required energy.
