Chiltern District Council has installed solar PV on the roof of the King George V Council Offices and the Chesham Leisure Centre in a bid to reduce rising energy costs and their dependence on electricity suppliers. The project was completed by InstaGen in November 2011.
Both systems were installed on high profile public buildings requiring detailed site surveys, system design and careful management. InstaGen worked hard with the Council’s Principle Engineer to ensure each stage in the process covered all the necessary legal and health and safety requirements for such an installation.
The site surveys were carried out on both the buildings by InstaGen’s renewable energy consultant, Waldon Energy, which proposed a bespoke design to improve the efficiency of the system on the Council Offices, with a simpler panel system on the Leisure Centre roof.
