Gloucester housebuilder to integrate solar panels into new homes

Gloucester-based Newland Homes has struck up an agreement with Viridian Solar to use integrated solar panels in its new homes.

The solar manufacturer has entered into a National Supply Agreement with Newland Homes for its Clearline fusion roof-integrated solar system.

At least 2kWp of solar power system will be fitted to all new detached homes, including those where there is no planning or building regulations requirement to do so.

Newland Homes builds around 200 news homes per year across the South West and is currently working on a number of schemes around the county, including in Maisemore, Hempsted and Toddington.

Gareth Hart, associate commercial director at Newland Homes, said: "At Newland Homes we strive to meet the aspirations of customers but also to be considerate to the communities and the environment in which we build, which means creating homes that are both beautiful and energy efficient. Clearline fusion from Viridian Solar really fits the bill."

Jamie Berryman, sales director of Viridian Solar, said: "Newland Homes are clearly ahead of the curve, seeing the value added by solar PV, and going beyond building regulations to install solar systems of a good size. We are very pleased to be associated with such an enlightened business and look forward to a successful relationship for many years to come."
