41.82kw School Solar Panel Installation Derby2-Chellaston Academy

The perfect roof!

The Solar system installed at Chellaston Academy is worth a whopping £80k over a 25 year period to the school!  Not bad to say the school did not have to raise a penny to reap the many benefits this will provide.  The school has virtually the perfect roof for Photovoltaics, an 18 degree pitch trapezoidal roof  facing slightly towards the Eastern morning sun.  More likened to the Commercial roofs the team at Custom Solar normally see.  Our designers had an easy time on this project when ensuring the panel layout optimised the available space.
