There are 310 TORC homes that have the Solic 200 Solar Panels in operation. All TORC homes which run on gas heating also have Solar panels, these are: Cluain Ailbhe, Drom Cuilinn, Clairin, Presentation Gardens and Pairc Ui Mhuirite. The remaining schemes in Roscommon, Skibbereen and Clonakilty have ‘Air to Water’ heating systems.
This month, John our Technical Advisor from the Repairs & Maintenance team has put together some key pieces of information on how the Solar Panels should operate. The Repairs team are called out fairly often for Solar Panel queries so it’s important for residents to know that different colour lights are displayed on the panel at different times as they are changeable with the weather. Only if you have a constant red light under the ‘mains’ should you contact the Helpdesk for assistance.
