Inaugural deal helps property business turn to solar
A renewable technologies company has signed a deal to install a series of high efficiency solar panels for a land and development property specialist.
The inaugural partnership between Raven Renewables, a renewables specialist organisation launched by Raven Housing Trust, and property investment, development and sourcing professionals, Property Experts, will see solar panels installed on the roof a three-storey building in Horley.
Founded in 2000 by Bruce Burkitt, Property Experts specialises in sourcing and buying residential, commercial, investment, development and land for clients and its own portfolio. The company has successfully completed over 900 transactions to date across London and the Home Counties.
The solar panel installation will be completed this summer and will include a remote monitoring system that will provide real-time data on how much power is generated.
Mark Gardiner, Business Development Manager at Raven Renewables said the partnership was another key deal in the growth of the newly founded organisation.
“At Raven Renewables we know that is important to look at all the ways in which we can reduce the carbon footprint of a home. Whether that is to help reduce the householder’s energy costs, comply with planning requirements or to future-proof the property for generations to come, solar power is a huge asset when it comes to renewable energy and we’re sure the residents will soon see the benefits of the installation.”
Bruce Burkitt at Property Experts said: “This deal will help reduce the amount of electricity our homeowner will need to buy from the grid. We know that it is important to consider all aspects of a property when looking to maximise energy efficiencies and reduce carbon emissions, and where better to start than the roof.”
Raven Renewables was founded by Raven Housing Association, and offers an end-to-end service for the design, installation and maintenance of renewable technologies including solar photovoltaic panels, air and ground source heat pumps and electric vehicle charging points.
Raven Housing Association is already delivering an industry-leading net zero carbon strategy, with Raven Renewables implementing this by retrofitting 6,000 properties. This will have a significant impact on carbon emissions, supplying a more affordable and energy efficient living environment for residents.
