Solar panels set shining example of cutting carbon

Free energy: two developments will have a total of 1,715 solar panels and tiles

Free energy: two developments will have a total of 1,715 solar panels and tiles

An example of how we are doing our bit to cut the UK’s carbon footprint is at two developments in Sussex where we are rolling out an array of solar panels and tiles.

Thousands of tonnes of carbon dioxide will be saved thanks to the discrete equipment installed by Linden Homes Guildford at some of the 414 houses and apartments at Fernley Park in Uckfield and Connect in Hayward’s Heath.

Overall there are 1,715 photovoltaic panels and tiles being fixed to roofs which will not only reduce the residents’ reliance on power generated by polluting fossil fuels, but will also earn some of them money for the surplus energy that is fed back onto the National Grid.

Fernley Park has 576 panels and tiles and hopes to save 20,392 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. Connect has 1,139 and should cut 47,606 tonnes.

Linden Homes Guildford managing director Peter Youll said: “This is a win-win situation for everyone. As well as contributing to the UK’s response to the challenge of global warming, we are cutting energy bills too.

“This is the sort of project that will become increasingly common across the country and we are very proud to be taking the lead in introducing such green technology that will bring real benefits to communities.”

Wherever possible we source our bricks from the UK.

Every piece of timber in your house is sustainably sourced timber. This means that new trees are planted to replace those cut down.
