Developing new build low carbon homes
The Group’s renewable division HBS New Energies, a solar PV specialist to the UK’s leading housebuilders has secured the contract to design, install and commission solar PV systems to 108 plots at Avenue Park. To help ensure the development meets its local planning conditions we have specified an integrated roof mounting kit for the mixed house types and the apartment blocks. This will provide a cost-effective and innovative solution for the developer, one that will achieve a sleek and aesthetic finish for each new home.
When complete, the 81.71 kWp new build solar PV scheme at Avenue Park will generate an estimated 57,197 kWh in annual zero carbon electricity. The inclusion of solar panels will also offset the developments carbon footprint by 28.6 tonnes per year.
