Provide maximum-sized clean energy solution for an existing pre-engineered steel building.
The existing pre-engineered steel building was being re-purposed while keeping costs down. The building had the insufficient structural capacity for solar panels and the roof seams were not fully steamed. The inspection group requested permanent access to the inverters for maintenance purposes. We also needed to provide a cost-effective EV Charging station that interfaces with Telus’ national network.
We used the highest wattage modules on the market as new products became available.
We worked with a structural engineering partner to analyze the existing structure of the roof, perform economical upgrades to support solar panels, and supply and install a large and aesthetically pleasing array. When we designed the solar system, we worked with a General Contractor to provide a steel service platform and we used the highest wattage modules on the market as new products became available. We also steamed the client’s roof while installing the solar array.
In addition to the roof solar array, we designed and installed an aesthetically pleasing wall mounted solar array that generated quite a buzz. We worked on numerous colour variations that would match the look of the building and had to coordinate with the existing window layouts. The wall panels went into pre-cast and we installed the best-looking solar panels, in our opinion.
We use the latest solar panels available on the market that allow the bottom half to be shaded and the top half to still produce. This will assist in increasing annual generation during the winter months.
Our team also installed an Electric Vehicle (EV) dual charging pedestal from our trusted provider charge point and connected it to Telus’ national network.
We provided a customer-owned meter and monitoring solution.
The monitoring solution. accessible via a webpage, to view building electricity usage and solar production live. Inferno’s design also provides up to 25% of the tenant’s electricity needs each year, helping offset carbon emissions, attract new customers and employees, and differentiate the business. Inferno was responsible for all design, procurement, construction, and commissioning of this project.
