How to provide easily installable on-site renewable electricity whilst maintaining the traditional aesthetics of a building, encouraging the uptake of such technologies.
This solution was sourced in response to one of UKGBC’s past challenges on ‘Making Existing Buildings Net Zero Operational Carbon’.
On Roofit.solar’s first project in 2017, 60m2 (7,7kW) of solar roofing material was installed. During 2019 the house produced 7,357kWh of energy, from which 6,414kWh was used, the rest being sold to the grid. Instead of paying for the electricity used during the year, the client was paid an extra 125€ for the supplementary green electricity produced.
