First Trinamount Installation in Europe Completed
Solar Century C21e Solar Electric Tiles
The C21e solar electric roof tile is a unique, roof integrated product. Ideal for new builds or re-roofing, each C21e solar roof tile replaces four conventional roof tiles and is attached straight to the roof battens.
C21e is recognised as one of the industry's leading solar products and has won a host of industry awards.
Sundog Energy, an authorized distribution partner of Trina Solar in the UK, installed the 50KWp PV system in the region of Cumbria. The installation consists of the innovative Trinamount mounting system together with 212 Trina Solar modules (TSM PC05, 235 W).
The multicrystalline modules were mounted on a pitched steel roof much faster and easier than using traditional rail based systems. The installation will provide enough solar energy to power a livestock market building during the day. Surplus power will be fed into the national grid generating additional revenue.
Ben Hill, President Europe at Trina Solar said: “We are very pleased to announce the completion of the first Trinamount project in Europe. This innovative mounting solution is easy to handle, uses less parts and eliminates the need for traditional mounting rails. Mounting our high performance modules with the innovative Trinamount solution saves time and reduces overall system costs. This further increases pricing competitiveness of solar energy compared to traditional energy sources.”
Martin Cotterell, Founder and Technical Director at Sundog, commented: “I personally led the installation team on site from start to finish. We had a race against time and a fight against bad weather conditions. We still managed to meet the tight deadline thanks to Trina Solar‟s new mounting system.”
Trinamount hardware is compatible with a wide variety of roof types. Trinamount I is designed for tile roofs. Trinamount II is designed for pitched roofs, and comes with mounting hardware for composition shingle, standing seam, corrugated and trapezoidal metal. Trinamount III is designed for use on flat roofs. All solutions follow the com- mon goal of reducing system costs through an innovative approach to PV mounting methodologies.
Features of the C21e solar roof tile: - No extra planning - C21e sits flush with the roof. - No specialist skills - all roofing work is carried out by the roofing contractor / solar installer. - Power output - guaranteed for 25 years. - Compatibility - Fits with a wide range of roof tiles.
