9.9 kW Solar PV Ground Mount Installation Balquhidder

9.9 kW Solar PV Ground Mount Installation Balquhidder

AC Gold installed this 9.9 kW ground mounted solar PV system for a customer in the picturesque setting of Balquhidder, Stirlingshire. The solar system was specifically chosen to be smaller than 10 kW as going above this size would have required the customer to apply for a G59 application from the local district network operator.

The system is estimated to generate about 8,177 kWh of electricity per year and should earn approximately £1,124 annually through feed-in tariff payments, electricity savings and export earning for the next 20 years.

AC gold installed 36 275 watt Trina Solar panels in a south facing ground mount solar system in Balquhidder. The solar panels were installed with a pitch of 30° using a stand alone ballasted PV-mounting system by Renusol.

The property which the ground mount solar PV array was connected to has an EPC rating of D or above, so the solar system qualifies for the higher domestic FIT rate, which at the time was 4.04p/kw.
