About the Project

Located in a popular coastal resort the client’s cottage was undergoing a complete refurbishment. The client’s main objective was to minimise energy consumption at the property as well as making a modest income from the feed-in tariff and to allow the charging of their electric vehicle. 

Although a roof mounted PV system would have met the client’s objectives, several neighbouring cottages had traditional on-roof PV systems and local animosity towards them was growing. Coupled with increasingly strict local planning rules, an alternative fixing method was required. As the roof was being replaced as part of the refurbishment programme Solarsense developed plans for a complete solar roof incorporating solar PV and solar thermal panels. 

The complete solar roof was the first in the area and is a great example of how innovative solar can be installed to deliver on performance while also minimising negative visual impact. As well as satisfying the local planning department the local community have been very positive and are grateful for the consideration the client has shown to maintaining the beauty of their local area.
