Many people consider Listed Buildings to be out of the equation when considering how to adopt renewable technologies but Eco2Solar Ltd have shown that anything is possible with the right approach (and communication with local planners)
Grade 2 Listed Building
Eco2Solar ltd recently completed the installation of a 100kWp, 400 panel Solar PV system to the grounds of a Grade 2 Listed Building in Herefordshire, which will provide the majority of the electricity needed for the estate and its many outbuildings.
Design sympathetic to area
Installed within two weeks, all black PV panels were selected and approved by the local planners in order to minimise the effect that the array would have on the nearby Tudor-Gothic court.
The court also commissioned the installation of a large Biomass plant which was installed by Eco2Solar’s Biomass partners, with Eco2Solar acting as project managers for the whole installation which will provide heating and hot water for the estate and its swimming pools.
Savings and Income
Both technologies will provide significant energy savings and income from the Renewable Heat Incentive and Feed in Tariff schemes over the coming years.
