Sun, Steel & Solar Panels
Updated: Aug 24, 2022
It's been an exciting week here at the main office, as the last solar panel was installed on the roof of the APD building.
Back in April we took delivery of 75 Perlight Delta 400W solar panels from Midsummer electrical. Each panel measures in at 1.6m x 1.1m and weighs 19kg. Not only do these panels look ultra-sleek, with a modern feel, they are also capable of producing 30kW of electrical energy and we have plenty of roof space to increase that capacity in the future.
Each panel has been mounted onto a galvanised steel frame, manufactured by DK Engineering, on the flat roof space above the workshop. We've laid the panels out in an arc tilted at a 35 degree angle, optimising sun exposure based on our location and latitude.
This marks another important step in APD Energy's journey to net zero.
