Harlow’s sunny perspective

Published:  01 June, 2012

Solar mapping from Bluesky has been used by Kier Harlow, a joint-venture company between Kier and Harlow Council, to support an ambitious scheme to install solar panels on council-owned properties. The scheme offered free installation for qualifying properties.

Bluesky used the most up-to-date aerial photography, highly accurate 3D computer models and specially developed algorithms to calculate the energy potential of individual roofs. These helped Kier’s energy solutions are identify properties with the greatest potential.

Paul Slater of Kier’s energy solutions team, says, ‘The Bluesky solar-potential assessment allowed us to target properties that would provide the greatest potential return on investment. This intelligence was invaluable as it allowed us to make initial assessments and decisions at the desktop, saving thousands of pounds on site surveys.’
