Woodpecker Crescent

104 kWp Solar PV system installed across multiple houses in East and West Sussex.

Ecolution installed a total of 104 kWp solar photovoltaic output across multiple houses, in the flourishing town of Burgess Hill located on the East and West border of Sussex for design and build contractors and Moat Housing Association.

This development consists of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes situated just a short distance from the breath-taking landscape of the South Downs National Park. These part private and part housing association homes incorporated environmental aspects both during the construction process and for when the new homes are occupied. They are designed to both reduce energy demands and minimise impact on their surrounding countryside. The developers recognise that the quality of the new homes they build is of vital importance to their customers, this means incorporating the latest technologies with their customers’ needs in mind. These modern, new build developments demonstrate that you can incorporate environmentally friendly features without compromising of the athletics of the property.

Moat Housing, own some of the properties at Woodpecker Crescent, they aim to ensure all their new homes meet high environmental standards like the ‘Code for Sustainable Homes’ to minimise the impact on both the local and global environment. Their main aim is to provide high quality affordable homes for their residents. The solar PV at Woodpecker Crescent not only meets their corporate environmental responsibilities, but also gives their low income residents an opportunity for a better quality of life, as they can use the free electricity generated by the solar PV system during the day which means lower energy bills for years to come.

The same can be said for the private residents, as these houses are seen as a home for the future, helping to reduce their carbon footprint and household outgoings by utilising free electricity generated by their solar PV system.

Ecolution won the contract at Woodpecker Crescent, were we designed, supplied and installed all of the solar PV requirements for the new build homes. We designed a variety of systems for various roof types using a range of high quality products to best suit each type of building. Throughout we used Ahead 250w monocrystalline all-black panels to ensure the aesthetic look of the properties were not compromised. All of the houses used an in-roof framing system allowing the panels to blend into the roof.

The solar photovoltaic systems at Woodpecker Crescent are now producing collectively 88,400 kWh of free electricity per year and have C0₂ savings of 46,763.60 kg per annum, for both the private and housing association residents.
