Solar PV Panels in South Wales may be Powering the T.A.R.D.I.S!

The secret behind the T.A.R.D.I.S’s power may have been exposed this week after the new BBC Wales studios, located near Cardiff Docks, revealed they are proud to be yet another company powered by solar PV panels in South Wales!

The popular television programme, Dr Who, is among those which are filmed in and around Cardiff at BBC Wales, which is one of the most recent companies to invest in solar PV panels in South Wales. The new studios have been fitted with a brand new, top-of-the-range, 50kw photovoltaic solar array which will contribute to a significant amount of the studio’s power. This brand new set of solar PV panels were installed over a two week period and comprise 200+  solar panels as well as three inverters to convert the solar power into efficient, eco-friendly,  studio-running energy!

The increase in interest in solar PV panels in South Wales is evidence of the huge process of regeneration going on in areas like Cardiff Docks. Both massive regeneration and solar panel installation are occurring in tandem in the area. This is clearly a sign that solar PV panels, in South Wales especially, are seen as the way forward to a new and more ecologically responsible way of life.

Experts in solar PV panels are hopeful that such a well known project could significantly increase investment in solar PV panels in South Wales and could become the standard for businesses and private homes in the area.

Solar PV panels in South Wales are certainly becoming more interesting to businesses and property developers. Ecologically-responsible projects have been in vogue for years and their popularity has been on the increase since solar PV panels became an achievable and affordable option. After all, installing photovoltaic systems is one of the best ways to work towards making your building carbon-neutral and it can be a very cost-effective power solution after an initial investment in the solar PV panels. The BBC Wales studios are a great example of a large business investing in their company’s green future.

The installation of solar panels at BBC Wales is proof of just how quick and painless going green can be. The entire project ran perfectly to its two week deadline and was finished in time for filming to begin at the studios this September. This is great news and great publicity for providers of solar PV panels in South Wales and is brilliant exposure for ecologically responsible projects in and around Cardiff. And, as for the T.A.R.D.I.S, if it turns out to be powered by the energy solution of the future, then it is certainly on to a winner!
