Solar Power Case Studies
We supply and fit solar panels throughout Sussex, Surrey and Kent.
A 250kw installation at Natco Foods Ltd in Buckinghamshire. Using over 1020 245w Solar Modules from Trina Solar we installed 48 strings of up to 23 panels. Over 10km of DC cables for this huge roof to 8 x 30kw Power one Trio inverters concerting the power into a 350Amps suppy for the commercial building. We were very happy and loved achieving this mammoth task.
Off Grid Solar PV Sytem in Dorking
Utilising SMA Sunnyboy and Island technologies we were able to convert this off-grid cotttage into a usable residence. For over 8 months of the year this system is self sufficient with no costs. For the winter a small, regular amount of batter charging is required from the generator to sustain the 10kwh per day requirement.

Mrs C Wrote “Hi Tom,
Just to let you know we generated 302 kWh in September (system installed on 1st Sept). That’s better than I was expecting from the database on the PV estimation utility (if you’re familiar with that). On the best days we just tipped 3kWh output, so again higher than we were expecting. We’re all enjoying looking at the inverter statistics as we go past and I have started to wait for the sun to come out before vaccuuming!
Many thanks for your friendly and efficient design and install service. Would have no hesitation in recommending Sunstore to friends and family.
Worthing, West Sussex, 2.47kw Solar PV
Power One PVI 3.0 Outdoor Inverter for 2 separate strings facing in different directions.
10 x Samsung LPC247 Modules
6 panels facing east and 4 facing south
This system athough may not immediately seem ideal but through a split tracker generates a very usable flat power curve from very early in the morning. This optimizes the potential savings.
Angmering, West Sussex, 2.4kw Sanyo Solar PV
SMA Sunnyboy SB3000TL Inverter for the greatest reliability, efficency and yield. Transformerless technology means silent operation and no parts to wear out. The professional choice.
The most powerful and compact modules available, Sanyo N240SE10
This system was producing over the 2.4kw on teh day we intalled it. Sanyo offer their panels with a minimum power unlike competetors average. ie 240w means you get a 240 – 264w panel where as other manufacturers offer their 240w panels between 228 – 240+w if your lucky.
Worthing, West Sussex, 3.75kw Sanyo Solar PV
SMA Sunnyboy SB4000TL Inverter for reliability and with 2 independent strings can achieve the best performance, efficency and yield.
The incredibly good looking H series panels from Sanyo with the distinctive round cell. Sanyo H250E01
South facing roof mount @ 45 degrees
N Lancing, West Sussex, 2kw Sanyo Solar PV
SMA Sunnyboy SB2000HF
Distinctive Sanyo H series panel with the round cell.250 watts each on a south facing clear sky.
A complex install with design and intracate cable runs to connect the system. This system was very rewarding to work on.
Concrete tiles and stainless steel fixings were included.
Portsmouth, Hampshire, 1.75kw Samsung Solar PV
SMA Sunnyboy SB1700 Inverter for reliability, efficency and yield. The best value modules available with high output, Samsung LPC247
1.75kw South facing roof mount @ 45 degrees

The most moden system: SMA Sunnyboy 2000HF Inverter for greater efficency and yield. The best modules available, Sanyo HIT H245E10
1.92kw South facing roof mount @ 30 degrees
Aesthetically very pleaseing with black framed panels. The Sanyo HIT utilise the superior Mono-crystalline cells and amorphous technologies these are rated at 21% efficient and regularly see a 25% greater yiearly yield.
Brighton, East Sussex, 3kw Hyundai Solar PV
SMA Sunnyboy SB3000HF Inverter, 15 x Hyundia 203w Polycrystalline Modules.
3.0 kw South west facing flat roof mount @ 25 degrees
Mounted on a flat roof without any piercing of the structure to keep waterproof integrity.
Hyundai modules are compact and very sucessful generators.
Brighton, East Sussex, 1.44kw Schuco Solar PV
Mastervolt XS inverter, Schuco MPE 180 Polycrystalline Modules.
1.44kw South facing flat roof mount @ 15 degrees
Flat roof mounts made with wood due to the new building restrictions in Brighton and Hove for this building. Making use of the flat area a green roof was used and the solar panels integrated considerately.
Worthing, West Sussex, 1.2kw Hyundai Solar PV
SMA Sunnyboy 1200 inverter, Hyundai 200 Polycrystalline Solar Panels.
1.2kw South facing concrete tiled roof
Using a very elegant mounting system we mounted the 6 Hyundai modules on the roof with no disturbance to the existing structure or tiles.
Polycrystalline panels are used in this installation as size was not an issue compared to budget. These panels are very consistent and generate good power in the duller cloudy days to offset against the electricity bill.
Brighton, East Sussex, 0.7kw Schott Solar PV
Mastervolt Soladin 600 inverter, 3 x Schott 235 Polycrystalline solar modules.
0.7kw East facing flat roof mouted
Due to shadows and roof design the best option for this smaller system was to face east at a low angle of 10 degrees. The high powered polycrystalline panels are better in indirect sunlight so the customer would experience the best gains from a limited situation.
With flat roofs it is usually limited to ballast on the framework to ensure safety. Drilling is not normally possible due to the roof skin and permiability issues. The balast is calculated and the correct amount of ballast is added.
