Zero Gas & Solar PV Facade!

Posted on

Urban Centric’s latest PBSA in Swansea is aiming to provide 100% of its energy use carbon free by eliminating the use of fossils fuels when in operation and through the use of renewable energy suppliers.

In additional to the roof being flooding with the most efficient solar panels available on the uk market we are also preparing a planning application for what we believe to be the first vertical PV facade in Swansea (perhaps Wales)

The plans included for solar optimisers to be fitted to each panel to ensure maximum output as the panels will only operate around @70% efficiency due to being fitted vertically.

Whilst not zero carbon, it’s a small step in the right direction.
