The Shed

The Shed

The client approached SPS Energy with a brief to install an On Grid PV Generator to take his property to energy cost neutral. 

The property power consumption profile required a large system with a large PV solar collector array.

The client was disinclined to install the system on his residence and instead opted to build a shed some distance from the residence with optimal orientation.  The shed roof was however smaller than the array and the client did not wish the array to be visible from the residence.

This combination of constraints required a lateral solution, which was delivered in a form that retained the shed lines, and followed the natural slope to remain below the residence site lines. A custom frame was designed and installed that extended the shed roof pitch to the North and permitted the array to remain fully illuminated.

An additional benefit to the client was a cooler shed, shaded on the northerly roof and wall.
