Rapid Housing Solar PV Project

ABM Design & Build awarded the contract to Clean Energy Solar to design, supply and fit the Solar PV systems to lot 2 and lot 4 of Dublin City Councils Rapid Build Housing scheme. The houses are the second phase of rapid build housing announced as an emergency response to the housing crisis. The lots consist of a development of 29 Houses in Drimnagh and a second development of 39 Houses in Finglas. Each House will be supplied with a PV system consisting of an array of PV panels mounted on the roof, a DC/AC Inverter in the loft space wired directly into the electrical distribution board of the building.

Clean Energy Solar Process

Structural engineers have been contracted to undertake the analysis of the structural action of the wind load on the PV array and the mounting components of the PV system. A full analysis was undertaken and the analysis concluded that the mounting system was well within the required parameters of the relevant standards.

Each PV system was installed, tested and commissioned to the highest level and compliance with all relevant standards. The homeowner was instructed on the use, maintenance and all other aspects of the system. The homeowner is then provided with all the relevant documentation.

The entire project was completed within time and budget.
Since the installation has been completed the homeowners have reported that the energy prices are very low and the houses are very comfortable. The contractors were also extremely satisfied and have awarded further contracts to Clean Energy Solar to install PV panels on other developments.
