Friday also allowed me to see the progress on the small 7.8kw PV being installed at Llyndu farm. The farm is over the valley from Hafod y Llan where all the hydro work is progressing. We have had a small niggle with one of the inverters but not far now from commissioning…especially with all this sun shine (Yeah right!)
The roof needed to be upgraded with additional purlins. Most of the sheds we have looked at probably need this additional strengthening because of the issue of wind uplift. This is because the PV wants to act as an aerofoil on your roof and the original roof design did not have PV in mind.
One thing which has dawned on us. This sort of work is now becoming ‘normal’ and not pushing the boundaries. Renewables becoming day to day…nice!
