ROOFING PV POWER TO NORTHWEST HOUSING PROJECTS » » HOUSEBUILDERS IN THE Northwest of England are plugging into the renewable energy future by choosing highly efficient and stylish in-roof solar PV for more than 400 new homes. Solarcrown Commercial, the renewable energy installation group, has won its second major in-roof photovoltaic project with Countryside, for 98 new-build homes on Blackberry Lane in Stockport, Greater Manchester, plus 10 more for the social housing provider Stockport Homes. This follows Solarcrown Commercial’s successful ongoing installation of solar in- roof photovoltaics systems on Countryside’s Highfield Green site in Kirby – made up of 200 properties, all 1kW or more, 100 of which are for Sigma Capital Group, also to be built by Countryside. Housebuilders are turning to solar PV electricity generation energy to boost household self-sufficiency, independence from utilities and peace of mind. With fossil fuel costs likely to remain uncertain, solar PV helps customers control prices in advance while reducing carbon emissions for a cleaner environment and a better future. All 418 homes in the four projects will feature in-roof PV modules made by Solarcrown Commercial consisting of frames that turn roofs into power generators.
