Better Homes Yorkshire, Leeds Corporate PVs, Case Study

Better Homes Yorkshire has been working on a variety of corporate buildings within the Leeds region, fitting them with Photovoltaic Panels (PVs) in order to provide them with free electricity. The PV works were carried out to Adel Beck Secure Children’s Home, St George’s Centre and the offices of Tech North.

Photovoltaic solar panels convert sunlight into electricity, even on a cloudy day, which can be used to power these different buildings. As a result, the buildings will see reduced energy bills. Any extra electricity generated by the solar panels and not used in the buildings can be sold back to the grid through the Feed-In Tariff meaning that the PV panels can actually make money for those who have had them installed.

Adel Beck Secure Children’s Home provides a range of services within a secure environment, supporting the needs of children in its care. The work carried out on the building involved 200 PV panels being fitted to the roof which will help to power the building, subsequently reducing the energy bills. The savings generated will provide the children’s home with additional funds to spend elsewhere. The works commenced on 12th September, installing a 50kW system using 200x250w Futura Sun panels, and completed on 30th September.

The works commenced on 10th September, installing a 28.5kW system using 114x250w Futura Sun panels, and completed on 30th September.
