YMCA Plymouth Goes Green With Commercial Solar PV

We were proud to have been commissioned to design and install a comprehensive energy-saving solution for YMCA Plymouth

This project involved two key aspects:

  • Upgrading the building envelope: A new pitched overclad and flat roofing system was installed, along with wall cladding. This not only improves the building’s aesthetics but also enhances its weatherproofing and thermal performance.
  • Sustainable power generation: We designed, installed, and commissioned a 56kWp commercial solar PV system. This system, featuring 140 x 400W Trina Solar Vertex S panels and a Growatt New Energy 50kW inverter, will significantly reduce the YMCA’s electricity bills.

Beyond Cost Savings

The combined effect of the roof and wall cladding upgrades and the solar PV system goes beyond immediate financial benefits. Here’s what YMCA Plymouth can expect:

  • Reduced Carbon Footprint: The solar PV system is estimated to generate over 10,500KG less carbon emissions annually, making a positive impact on the environment.
  • Enhanced Building Safety: The new roof and wall cladding ensure the long-term structural integrity and safety of the building for years to come.
