45.25 kWp Solar PV system installed across one large block of flats in London.
Ecolution installed a total of 45.25 kWp solar photovoltaic systems, across one large block of flats, in Hornsey, London, with contractor’s Circle Housing and Hertfordshire based, Independent design and build developer.
Circle Housing’s are dedicated to their environmental agenda which focuses primarily on their assets, customers and operations. They have been focusing on their environmental management approach and finalising their Energy Saving and Warm Homes Strategy. Circle Housing’s priority is to continue to deliver the Group’s strategy involving creating energy efficient homes with renewable technologies to help tenants reduce their energy bills and help illuminate fuel poverty.
Ecolution won the contract for installation of solar photovoltaic (PV), installing a flat roof Light Tegra mounting system with 250w polycrystalline solar panels on top of the large block of flats. This utilised the wasted space which would have otherwise gone unused to create energy efficient homes without compromising on the aesthetic look of the building as they are not visible from ground level.
This new housing development at Campsbourne Road incorporates 15 new, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments for shared ownership purchase from Centra living (formerly Circle Living). This scheme provides low income families the opportunity to own their home which otherwise they wouldn’t have been able to afford. Affordable living homes were the main focus for this new build site, meaning that they needed to provide a solution for cheaper living costs in the long term, for Circles low income tenants to live in. This is why Solar PV was chosen as it provides residents with free electricity during the day, reducing their energy bills for years to come. This is a step closer for Circle Housing towards helping eliminate fuel poverty in the UK and reducing their carbon footprint.
These Solar Photovoltaic systems at Campsbourne Road are now producing in total 38,462.50 kWh of free electricity per year for the Council’s tenants. They also collectively have C0₂ savings of 20,346.66 kg per annum.
