Your Group, headquartered at Bristol and Bath Science Park, is proud to announce the UK’s first solar street for new home buyers. A partnership with Bovis Homes sees a coupling of modern solar technology with traditional build aesthetics looking to pave the way for micro generation and innovative new build design. Bovis Homes have opted to incorporate an almost invisible solar PV cell on a mixture of dwelling types, hoping to be the first ever large house builder to offer an integrated solar roof to their customers. The Uk’s first solar street will be located at the Bovis development at Charlton Hayes, Filton in Bristol.
Speaking today Robyn Morley, Business Development Manger of Your Group has said: “You can now purchase a traditional build property which combines modern technology with sustainability whilst being aesthetically pleasing and respecting traditional architecture. Your Group are proud to be partnering with such a prestigious home builder to be bringing these options to new home buyers.”
Ergosun Solar Tiles are bespoke manufactured by Your Group’s partner, Solar Mass Ltd which deliver the energy efficient performance of an integrated solar system with the weather protection and aesthetic elegance of a traditional roof tile. The clean green electricity generated improves the efficiency and total energy balance of the building, contributing towards a zero carbon status. With installations in Canada, Sweden, Egypt & South Africa the Ergosun tile will feature on the UK’s first solar street.
Bovis Homes Quantity Surveyor, Darren Harris, said “We’re excited to be working with Your Group to be able to bring this innovative product to our new homeowners, giving them the option to save on their energy bills and be part of the UK’s first solar street.”
