AES Solar are delighted to have recently launched a service to custom build solar thermal panels from our Endurance range.
Not only can the shape be altered to accommodate difficult roof areas, the frame can be any colour you like. This opens up all sorts of possibilities for architects, designers and specifiers.
Taking our standard sizes and designs, these can be altered to meet specific requirements and be adjusted to maintain collector area and thus output performance.
The service was recently used by Solar Kingdom in their shortlisted project for the prestigious Solar Power Portal Awards. Nominated for the Best Residential PV Project, we manufactured two custom built panels that fit snugly into the roof hips.
A vibrant team
The capability and flexibility to produce products such as this, is a reflection of the young and vibrant workforce at AES. With over 70% of the headquarters staff holding one or more degrees, or a professional qualification, we also have three modern apprentices plus another staff member who has gained qualification through this route. In the last twelve months, the workforce has continued to grow, increasing by 50% despite the challenges the solar industry currently faces.
As well as our Endurance panels, we also manufacture our Supremacy range of roof integrated solar thermal panels. These offer a sleek and discrete appearance on any roof blending easily with the surface.
Business owner and CEO George Goudsmit explained: “The team love a challenge that lifts them above the routine. It was their ideas that led to the development of this value added service. Word has spread quickly of what is possible, and I am pleasantly surprised at the number of enquiries received. No one has yet asked for outrageous colours but I suspect it is only time”.
