Completed and Commissioned April 2009

The Largest Residential Roof Mounted Solar PV System In the North of England When Commissioned


Good Neighbor, a proactive social enterprise dedicated to advocating community-scale solutions for addressing climate change, proudly selected Northern Solar for their exceptional expertise and experience in designing and implementing Solar PV systems, even in complex scenarios. Our strong environmental credentials further solidified our partnership.

Northern Solar achieved a notable feat by skillfully designing, installing, and commissioning a 40KWp Solar PV system on the rooftop of a residential apartment block for the group. This undertaking involved a critical challenge: optimizing space on the roof while preserving its weatherproof integrity. To address this, we opted for a non-penetrating ballasted aluminium framework system. The framework was strategically mounted at a 10° inclination to maximize the system's energy generation potential.

System Details 

160 Suntech 250w modules

2 SMA 15,000 TL inverters
17,000 KGs of CO2 emissions being saved per year

 The electricity generated is 31,000 KWhs per year that will be fed into the flats and therefore reduce the building’s
overall electrical expenditure.
The FIT’s tariff for this system is guaranteed for 20 years and is index linked
so will increase. It offers a return of £9216.00 per annum.
