The Installation Phase
Agreed installation project plan
Each solar installation for commercial businesses is different and will have their own unique technical design features and operational factors to consider in line with a client’s requirements.
Therefore, once approvals and the preliminary works are in place then Centreco will enact the specific installation project plan as pre-agreed with client management and operational teams to take account of the precise nature of a site’s function and practice whilst ensuring each installation meets the technical brief to the highest quality.
Centreco, as a leading solar panel installation business, use experienced employed and qualified staff and electricians on each solar pv system installation. Each project will be overseen on site by an experienced Project Manager. An installation will be undertaken in a timely manner and there will be no undue disruption to a site’s operation. Continuous update on installation progress is available from the Project Manager with a formal daily or weekly feedback process put in place as required by each client.
Site and roof access will be at a time and location to suit a site’s local operation
Panel storage and mounting
Panels are stored safely and securely in line with a site’s layout, although Centreco will arrange for split deliveries of panels to meet any storage facilities constraints. Any waste and packaging will be removed from site by Centreco and disposed of environmentally.
Modules will be laid as per the agreed commercial solar panel installation design and secured using an approved mounting kit to maintain complete roof integrity and consistent with any outstanding roof warranty positions. Skylights will be protected as per the design.
Centreco’s objective on an installation is to cause as little impact on a site’s operation as possible. We will work around a client’s daily business and provide an efficient, clean and safe installation service.
Electrical works undertaken by Centreco’s experienced engineers
The inverters will be mounted as agreed and the connections to the mains supplies and meters conducted to ensure operation within the design criteria and the DNO agreed specification. The system’s generation will be used in preference to the mains supply, with any over generation exported (sold) back to the grid. The usage and export meters will provide the generation, billing and reporting information.
Wiring will be routed efficiently through the array and will be fixed to allow convenient entry to the agreed inverter (internally or externally) and switch location.
A full remote monitoring device will be fitted to the system allowing access to generation and CO2 saving statistics historically and in real time. This information can be shown via online portals and can be displayed prominently, in a client’s reception area for example.
