HBS New Energies awarded solar PV contract by leading housebuilder Mears Group
We’re delighted to announce that one of the UK’s leading housebuilders, the Mears Group has selected HBS New Energies to design, supply and install solar PV systems to a new residential scheme in Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire.
The mixed-tenure development of 59 houses and 15 apartments is being constructed by Mears New Homes, the new-build housing division of the Mears Group on behalf of the Aldwyck Housing Group.
Designed and built to a high specification, the Longwick Road scheme will offer high quality, affordable and energy efficient new homes to meet the rising demand of different buyers’ needs in and around Princes Risborough. There will be a range of 1 to 5 bedroom properties, available for private mark sale, shared ownership and affordable rent.
Delivering best value for housebuilders
The PV contract awarded to HBS covers the design, supply, installation and commissioning of solar PV systems across the development. Our in-house design team value engineered an integrated PV option to suit all house types, with system sizes ranging from 1.2-3 kWp. This provided a best value solution to ensure the development met its energy targets whilst offering a sleek and aesthetic finish for each new property.
With the project now well underway, our experienced solar installation teams are working flexibly to adhere to the client’s delivery programme. Check out for project updates across our social channels in the coming months. For more details on this exciting project please visit here.
When complete, the 34.8 kWp of new build integrated solar PV will generate an estimated 31,784 kWh in annual zero carbon electricity. The inclusion of solar panels will help to offset the developments carbon footprint by 16496 kg per year.
