The south facing site is a great location for solar PV to generate clean renewable electricity, we expect to install around 280kWp of PV. The roofs will be angled to maximise solar PV generation. Any excess not used by the homes, would be used to power heat pumps which will provide heat to the site, charge up the electric cars, or be stored in a battery. We are exploring how much can be generated on site and whether we will be able to export electricity back to the grid.
