FlexiSolar has completed a 133kWp solar carport system for a large, multi-storey car park in Sutton, South London. Self-funded by Sutton Council as part of its £500,000 solar PV rollout programme, FlexiSolar installed the project atop Gibson Road multi-storey car park. Bespoke frames were designed for the site’s split-level nature and the array covers 57 car parking spaces. Much of the work was conducted overnight in order to limit disruption to surrounding roads. Nearly 500 panels were installed to make up the array and it is expected to generate around 120,000kWh of energy each year. Sutton Council’s solar deployment initiative is one of a number of schemes launched in the council’s bid to become a zero carbon council by 2025.
