SSE Airtricity and the Oddysey Trust teamed up to make one of the best solar panel systems on the island a reality. The plans were put in place and Activ8 Solar Energies delivered it. Built across six of the buildings rooftops, this 1,448 solar panel system wasn’t your normal installation but the design and construction of the entire system was completed by Activ8 Solar Energies with sustainability and efficiency in mind. Industry leading 290-watt panels from Suntech were mounted on an aerodynamic ESDEC mounting system. The ESDEC system significantly reduced the weight required for the ballast system, which reduced the load on the roof. From the mounting system
to the 17 SMA inverters, to the individual Bloomberg Tier 1 Suntech panels, Activ8 used industry-leading partners to put together a truly brilliant system for a trusted partner in SSE Airtricity.
