Bloor Homes award HBS New Energies with brace of solar PV contracts
We’re pleased to announce that Bloor Homes (Southern) has selected HBS New Energies to install solar PV systems to new homes under construction at two of their residential housing developments in Sandhurst and Binfield.
This latest double solar PV contract award follows the successful completion of 65 roof-integrated solar PV systems designed and installed by HBS for the housebuilder at their Crowdhill Green development in Fair Oak, Hampshire.
Sandhurst Gardens a brand-new community in Sandhurst is set to feature 108 high specification, energy efficient 2, 3, 4 & 5 bedroom homes. Viridian’s roof-integrated Clearline Fusion panels are being installed by HBS New Energies to 18 of these new homes with system sizes ranging from 2.08-4.16 kWp. Upon completion, the 46.28 kWp BIPV new build solar PV scheme will generate an estimated 44,546.8 kWh in annual zero carbon electricity and save the housebuilder and their customers up to 23.11 tonnes in CO2 per year.
The second project, The Fairways will consist of 286 high specification 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes built at the old Blue Mountain Gold Club. This forms part of a major new local plan to deliver a much-needed housing boost for Binfield. HBS New Energies have secured the solar PV installation contract for phase 1 of this development. The 25.38 kWp of Viridian roof-integrated solar PV systems will help to offset the developments carbon footprint by up to 12.29 tonnes per year.
Helping Bloor homes meet their energy targets through integrated solar
HBS’s design team working with Viridian, value engineered a roof-integrated solar PV system to suit the range of house types to ensure both housing developments achieved their required 20% reduction in CO2 emissions through on-site renewable generation. This provided a best fit solution, tailored to suit the client’s energy requirements within budget.
James Bull, Managing Director, HBS New Energies said:
“Being appointed by Bloor Homes to install and commission roof-integrated solar PV to their latest developments is great news and I am delighted that they have recognised the quality and reliability of HBS’s new build PV installation service.
