Two turnkey 3.6 kilowatt systems were installed in the summer of 2012, south-oriented on two new-build properties in the location of Canford Cliffs, a suburb of Sandbanks in Poole, Dorset. It was proposed to incorporate a 24 Solar Frontier CIS thin-film based module system, arranged in groups of 12, as the product once again proved decisively competitive with conventional, crystalline modules.

The aesthetic values of the project location also made the all-black Solar Frontier modules more compelling than conventional crystalline. The Solar Frontier modules were installed using a built-in Photovoltaic System (BIPS) frame work system. The property development company was delighted with the visual appeal of the installation, as well as the energy savings they made possible for their customer. These two rooftop installations are expected to produce 4,000 kWh each and save about two tons of CO2 annually.
