17.5 kWp Solar PV systems installed across multiple homes in Barnham, West Sussex.
Ecolution installed a total of 17.5 kWp solar photovoltaic systems across multiple homes, in the perfectly located, semi-rural location of Barnham, West Sussex for new build developers.
This development consists of two bedroom bungalows as well as two, three and four bedroom houses situated between the South Downs and the coast in the Arun District of Sussex. This peaceful village is characterised by its range of independent and small shops giving the new residents a real feel for village living.
Environmental aspects were of high importance for this project and were considered throughout both the construction process and on completion of the homes when the new residents move in. These factors were of high importance for the builder due to their strong sustainability policies and also for the House Association who own the number of affordable homes at the new development due to most of their residents having a low income. Therefore, the aim for the new homes at Arun Place were to both reduce energy demands and minimise their impact on the surrounding areas which is why solar photovoltaic systems were specified.
Ecolution were awarded the project at Arun Place, where we designed, supplied, installed and now also maintain the solar PV for the Housing Association as well as some of the private residents. We designed and installed 0.5 kWp solar PV systems consisting of high-quality products to be in keeping with the high-quality standards of the builders and to ensure the aesthetics of the property. We installed black 250W monocrystalline solar panels on an in-roof mounting system allowing the panels to sit flush against the tiled roof. We also used micro inverters which ensured quicker installation and commission as no internal access was necessary.
These solar photovoltaic systems at Arun Place are now producing collectively 15,680 kWh of FREE electricity each year and have carbon savings of 8,294.72 kg per annum, which is helping residents to reduce their energy bills for years to come and helping them protect the environment.
