In just three weeks Ameon designed and installed solar PV systems on 121 houses in east Lancashire, working against the clock to beat the Government’s deadline for reducing Feed-in Tariffs for residential systems. The project for Greenvale Housing Association was worth £1 million.

The work involved 1936 Suneker solar PV panels in installations of 16 panels to deliver 3.04 kW, plus Mastervolt inverters and GSM (smart meters in every home). The social-housing stock on several estates in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, and Haslingden, Lancashire,included bungalows and 2-storey properties. Each property will benefit from electricity savings of around £150 a year.

Three teams of roofers and two teams of electricians worked on the contract.

Ameon’s managing director Robin Lawson comments, ‘I don’t know if it’s a record to have installed so many systems in such a short period of time, but it must be pretty close to it, so we’re delighted we’ve been able to deliver for Greenvale and its residents.’
