Clenergy recently completed an order for a 3.8MW rooftop PV project in Shropshire, U.K., utilizing the Clenergy Trapezoidal commercial roof mounting system. EvoEnergy, one of the U.K.'s leading installers, completed the installation at the Telford distribution center of Lyreco, a provider of workplace supplies. The project is one of the five largest commercial rooftop arrays in Great Britain.


Work on the project started in mid-August and wrapped up in December. As part of Lyreco's efforts to offset its environmental impact, this project will generate an estimated 3.2MWh per year, reducing emissions by 1,700 tons annually and saving Lyreco around 53,000 British pounds per year.

The PV-ezRack Trapezoidal commercial roof mounting system was developed for PV-systems on trapezoidal sheet roofs with thicknesses of 0.4mm and above. The system is made of anodized aluminium rails with an EVA coating and special screws that enable it to be screwed in without chipping.

The system, which is supplied in its finished pre-assembled form, also comes with Clenergy's patented Z-module clips that can be simply clipped on from above. The small number of components that come with the system enables it to be rapidly mounted in no time at all. The fact that only a few components are required also enables retailers and wholesalers to benefit from favorable transportation and storage costs.

The roof of this project consists of both 0.63 gauge Quedron and 0.4 gauge Kingspan top sheets. Pull-out tests were carried out to ensure the optimum screw for the project was selected. "We selected Clenergy Trapezoidal mounting because it is a simple, fast and easy system to deploy and because the service provided by Clenergy is excellent," said James Sutton, project manager for EvoEnergy.
