Eco2Solar wins more business from Linden Homes agreement

RENEWABLE energy company Eco2Solar has secured a £0.7m order to provide solar PV to 323 new homes and four large apartment blocks from Galliford Try’s housebuilding division Linden Homes.

Kidderminster-based Eco2Solar is working with Linden Homes to install solar PV systems on new build homes throughout the UK. The deal is via the preferred supplier agreement it has with the building firm.

Eco2Solar will help Linden Homes meet the BREAAM code 4-6 for sustainable homes which will guarantee energy savings for future residents who will qualify for the government’s Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) incentive – which pays householders for every kWh of electricity they generate and export back to the national grid.

One of the biggest projects is at Evolution Quarter, Orpington in Kent which will see the installation of 53 solar energy systems on two and three bedroom homes.
Installations will also be completed at Kingston Mills, the riverside development of 171 new homes in Bradford-on-Avon.

Eco2Solar sales and operations director Ryan Mee said: “It has been a great start to the year for Eco2Solar as we continue to bid and win solar PV contracts under our preferred supplier agreement with Linden Homes.”

Eco2Solar signed its agreement with Linden Homes in June last year, taking on its existing solar PV contracts and all its new solar energy contracts from Galliford Try’s dedicated energy company Regeneco.
