The owner of this listed property was interested in renewable energy and approached EnergyMyWay for advice on their options. We considered biomass, but this was rejected by the planners, and heat pumps which were not a practical option. However we were able to specify and install a remote ground mounted solar panel system, positioned and landscaped to meet planning expectations.
EnergyMyWay worked with the architect to get agreement from the planners for the proposed array. We then installed the solar panel system in a discreet location, maximising exposure to solar irradiation, while overcoming the planning constraints of the property’s listed status.
