The Community Housing Group FIT For Solar Power
Kidderminster based Eco2Solar have won a contract to supply a solar electricity system for The Community Housing Group (TCHG), also in Kidderminster. The system, one of the largest in the Midlands, will provide TCHG with free electricity and allow them to earn an income for all the clean electricity produced by the solar energy system from the new government Feed in Tariff; also known as FIT.
The 72 square metre solar array will be installed on the front and side roof pitches at the Foley Grove head office and will generate nearly 8,000kWh of electricity and save over 4 tonnes of CO2 each year. As these systems are designed to last over 25 years this is anticipated to equate to well over 106 tonnes in its lifetime. Managing Director Paul Hutchens is delighted; “Eco2Solar are pleased to be given the opportunity to work with a high profile local institution such as The Community Housing Group. It is fantastic that we are able to save money on fuel bills for vulnerable people and reduce fuel poverty in the Wyre Forest as well as make a significant contribution towards the fight against climate change”.
Eco2Solar have also recently won contracts to supply and install solar energy systems for new Medical Centres in Bromsgrove and Barry, South Wales as well as several schools in the Midlands, a large apartment block in London and a care home in Scotland.
Eco2Solar also install solar energy systems and heat pumps for homes and businesses in the Midlands. For more information call 01562 745265 or visit their website
