Congratulations to architect Guy Forman from Chapel Hill; his fabulous house ‘Postman’s Rest’ has won North Kestevern Council’s Best Sustainable House Award. With 2kW of solar PV installed by Electrikcollective Ltd, ground source air pump and triple glazing, the property attained an AA Energy Rating upon completion.
The correct choice of modules for this project was significant: having a hipped roof meant space was at a premium and whilst maximum generation and efficiency was key impact on property’s appearance was imperative. Panasonic’s stylish and highly efficient HIT 250W panels blend well with Guy’s design; combined with a Fronius IG 20 the system has outperformed its predicted 1635.2kW by 200kW in the wettest summer on record!
The property is being put forward for the LABC East Midlands Awards in March- best of luck!
