Fairfax Drive

19 kWp Solar PV systems installed multiple new build homes in Southend-On-Sea.

Ecolution installed a total of 19 kWp solar photovoltaic output across 22 modern new build houses in Southend-On-Sea for new-build developers.

This particular contactor specialises in high quality, innovative developments, they are a dynamic commercial and residential new build developer with a diverse property portfolio. They believe in building for the future and are committed to sustainable development which is why they strive to ensure all of their projects meet or exceed all industry regulations and building standards. It was, therefore, important to choose the right renewable technology and best products for Fairfax Drive.

Ecolution won the renewable contract, we designed and installed both 3 and 4 panel solar photovoltaic systems across the variety of house styles. By utilising our distribution arm we were able to specify high quality reliable products at competitive prices. We used 250W polycrystalline solar panels, Growatt 1000S Mini inverters, and K2 on-roof mounting systems.

We chose to go with an on-roof mounting allowing us to maximise the solar PV system size on the roof. If we had gone with an in-roof mounting system it would have allowed the solar panels to sit flush and blend in with the roof tiles, however, we would have had to reduce the renewable system size. This was because the dormer windows flashing would have overlapped with the solar PV flashing causing the system to not be water tight. With building for the future in mind, it was, therefore, important that the solar PV system size was maximised to ensure that the residents would receive the maximum energy savings and reduced energy bills for years to come.

These spacious, contemporary 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses are located just half an hour away from the coastal capital and are now collectively producing 16,150 kWh of free electricity each year and reducing the residents of Fairfax drive carbon footprint with C0₂ savings of 8,543.35 kg per annum.
