PV and biomass heating for social housing tenants

Tenants of a new development by a Housing Association in South Wales will benefit from two forms of renewable energy in 2010 – Photon Energy has been contracted to install 115kW of solar PV and another contractor will provide biomass heating at this development at Old Town Dock in Newport. 

The PV modules will be mounted on both pitched and flat roofs of three apartment blocks, the energy centre and fifteen houses and operated on a private wire scheme.
