Solar PV scheme helps protect 350 Scottish homes from fuel poverty
A total of 350 homes at risk of fuel poverty have been given a helping hand by Knowes Housing Association after installing solar PV on houses in Scotland.
The solar PV installations are part of a £2 million programme of energy improvements for the housing association over the next two years. The improvements are expected to deliver annual energy bill savings of £70,000.
The recent solar PV rollout saw 350 homes fitted with solar arrays sized between 2kWp and 4kWp, totalling 980kWp of capacity.
Simon Booth, Commercial Director of Renewable Energy Investments says “People are starting to recognise, and benefit from solar PV in the domestic arena. In the commercial world, businesses can future-proof against escalating energy bills and provide some control over future energy prices”.
