HBS New Energies to design, supply and install solar PV systems to 152 new homes at Taylor Wimpey’s Kingfisher Grange development. The inclusion of solar panels ensured that the scheme satisfied local carbon reduction targets for planning permission.
In 2017, Taylor Wimpey awarded HBS New Energies with the contract to supply a complete PV installation service for their Kingfisher Grange development in Southampton to meet the energy targets set and help reduce carbon emissions. The scheme of 152 new sustainable homes includes 2,3,4 and bedroom 5 bedroom homes, all designed and built to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.
- HBS New Energies are currently on site managing the design, supply and installation of 152 on-roof solar PV systems. As part of the contracted works our dedicated install teams are managing all roofing, electrical connection and system commissioning.
- To ensure system performance across the development satisfied planning requirements, our design team have value engineered an on-roof PV solution to fit the smaller roof size for all house types and blocks of flats.
Each PV array includes the Clenergy PV-ezRack® Mounting System with the compact and highly efficient Perlight Delta 250w 54 cell black modules. Combined, this provided a cost-effective package for the client whilst achieving an aesthetic finish for each new home.
- When complete, the 105.25 kWp PV scheme will yield a projected 84,200 kWh from renewable energy sources and deliver carbon emission savings of 42,100 kg per year.
- The inclusion of solar PV panels on each new home will provide an added benefit for the end-user, with homeowners able to enjoy lower energy costs long into the future thanks to solar energy.
