This grid-connected roof mounted PV Array was installed by Ardenham Energy and commissioned by South Facing at the West Oxford Community Centre on the Botley Road in Oxford.

Alternergy supplied all the hardware for the system including the Sharp modules, inverters and mounting frames. The installation was undertaken following the award of a Low Carbon Building Program Phase 1 Grant, and planning approval by Oxford City Council in April 2007.

The 5kWp array is expected to generate around 4,000kWh of solar electricity each year. The installation features a display showing cumulative kWh and instantaneous Watts in the community center’s reception, a three phase pulsed kWh meter and a DC and AC switchgear.
