Award-winning Scottish installer, Solar Kingdom has completed its largest ever roof integrated system, fitting a single roof with 60 panels, or 15kWp – in the process creating significant savings in installation costs. Installed for businessman Craig Muir at Strathore Business Park, near Kirkcaldy, the Strathore Plant Hire main office building (above) was to be re-roofed as part of a major refurbishment. During the process, he decided this was an opportunity to consider a solar installation and invited Solar Kingdom to complete the work. By fitting the solar panels as part of the building renovation, all installation work on the roof became cost-neutral. Scaffolding was already in place and fitting the panels was substitutional for the work of fitting tiles. There were further savings of over £1,000 in cost of roof tiles. Solar Kingdom opted to use the new Viridian Solar Fusion system which is fast and easy for experienced roofers to install. This combination reduced the total cost of the project compared to a conventional installation process.
