Client Background

T Clarke is a construction engineering company that operates throughout the United Kingdom, they invited UCS Renewables to provide a quotation for the design and installation of a solar panel system for the new Queen Elizabeth school campus in Hexham. The schools were granted additional funding to ensure an EPC rating of A, this required the implementation of renewable energy solutions to reduce emissions to combat climate change as part of the local council's energy commitments.  The original school building will remain as it is a listed building, the new elements of the schools have been constructed on additional land surrounding the building.

The Challenge

The new school merges Hexham Middle school and Queen Elizabeth High into one campus, as part of a £31.2m project which has been funded by Northumberland Council and the Department of Education. The school is scheduled to re-open in September 2021 to align with the start of the school year, therefore it was vital that UCS Renewables completed the installation before this date.

What UCS Renewables Did

UCS Renewables designed and installed a 69.3kWp system which was installed across two school buildings. The system featured 30kW and 36kW Solis inverters alongside 252 Sharp solar panels.

108 panels were installed on the roof of block 3 and 144 panels were installed on block 4.

The Curve, Teesside University

Working on behalf of local firm Castle Building Services, we installed 177 x 250w solar panels to generate clean, renewable energy. The panels were placed in an east-west configuration using a Renusol FS10 East/West mounting system to make use of the limited space available and ensure maximum exposure to the sun. The result is that the solar panels generate green electricity 365 days a year, providing a renewable energy source and allowing Teesside University to meet its sustainability targets.

Pulman Skoda Durham

UCS installed 80 solar panels onto the showroom’s roof. Working with Kingspan, we designed the layout of solar panels so that the array didn’t affect the integrity of the roof. We used drawings supplied by Kingspan and their standing seam brackets in the installation. The result was a roof of commercial solar panels carefully designed and installed to generate solar power for the showroom. The installation looks great and the building runs on solar energy, meaning low running costs for Pulman Skoda’s flagship showroom.
