Plug-In Solar 1kW (1000W) New Build In-Roof (BIPV) Solar Power Kit for Part L Building Regulations
£1,369.99 (ex. VAT)
£1,643.99 (inc. VAT)
This building integrated (BIPV) In-Roof Plug-In Solar kit has been specifically assembled to help developers meet Part L Building Regulations and SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) calculations for new builds/self builds/offices/conversions or extensions in the UK.
The installation of renewables, such as solar energy, in new build housing across Scotland is helping building developers meet demanding new building regulations, specifically Standard 6.1. Using a Plug-In Solar New Build Kit to meet these new Scottish regulations is a simple solution, that can also add value to new homes.
Plug-In Solar kits, such as this one, contain EVERYTHING you need to complete your own Solar PV installation WITHOUT the need for a dedicated installation team.*
Our kits include ALL the G98 documentation required to commission your installation with your local DNO, as well as step by step instructions on the process. All components comply fully with the G98 requirements and have MCS certifications.
The GSE/Easyroof In-Roof Mounting Kit
The In-Roof integration kit is a simple, quick, lightweight, waterproof method of installing solar panels in-roof. It is much more inexpensive than doing on-roof installation of solar panels for new builds.
The In-Roof Integration Kit has the following advantages:
- Photovoltaic modules (Solar Panels) can be installed in all roof types.
- It fits 95% of the PV Modules (Solar Panels) on the market
- Solar Panels can be installed on 15° to 50° pitch
- Compatible with virtually all photovoltaic panels on the market (please ask about specific solar panels)
- Portrait or landscape solar panel installation
- Meets the CEIAB 2012 standard, MCS012 Certification, and T4-Broof standards
Integration and watertightness come from installing the steel trough with a fixing system on high point. Integration allows Photovoltaic modules to be fitted to any roof cover (Roman, interlocking or flat tiles, slate or steel troughs) on new and renovated buildings. The kit can be installed in portrait or landscape format on both small installations (less than 3 kWp) and large ones (several hundred kWp). The GSE Integration system can be fitted to wooden or metal structures from 15° to 50° pitch.
Electricity Generation and Carbon Dioxide Savings
With a 1kW (1000W) In-Roof Plug-In Solar Kit, it is estimated that you will generate 1030kWh per year. The carbon dioxide savings are estimated to be around 467.50 kgCO2 per year.**
The Plug-In Solar Advantage
With standard Solar PV kits, electricity generation is dependent on the panel that is performing the worst. These types of systems will will not perform well with panels that are oriented in multiple directions or if panel shading is an issue.
Our Plug-In Solar Kits use Micro-Inverters to take full advantage of the production capability of each individual solar panel, regardless of shade or orientation to the sun. This ensures each panel can produce the maximum power and is not affected by the performance of another panel in the array.
The Plug-In Solar System is flexible, and modular so you can design a kit to fit your current budget and energy needs, and expand it later as you wish. The system is completely modular, meaning if you want to add more panels, or a solar battery, this can be simply achieved.
Plug-In Solar Kits are also Energy Storage Ready, meaning a battery system can easily be added to our kits using the Enphase AC Battery Storage Module.
