Larkfleet committed to sustainable energy.
Housebuilder and developer Larkfleet Group has shown its commitment to sustainable energy by installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to provide electricity for its head offices in Bourne, Lincolnshire.
The panels produce electricity from daylight, generating useable power even on cloudy days.
Southfield House – a building adjacent to the company’s headquarters, Larkfleet House – was chosen for the installation due to its large south-facing roof.
The installation of 42 PV panels provides 10 kWp (kilowatt peak) of energy for Larkfleet House, reducing energy use from the grid and therefore reducing the cost of energy.
Larkfleet will also benefit from the government’s Feed in Tariff, which guarantees payments for the generation of energy from renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaic panels.
Lark Energy, the newest company in the Larkfleet Group, oversaw the planning of the project and installation of the panels, working closely with local group partners Deepings Trading, which supplied the components, and Cawood Electrical, accredited PV installers.
Larkfleet Group managing director Karl Hick commented: “This installation demonstrates Larkfleet Group’s commitment to sustainability, not only within our building developments but also within our own business practices. This is the first of many Lark Energy projects that will include photovoltaic panels in both commercial and residential environments.”
Lark Energy was established by the Larkfleet Group to develop renewable energy projects, both to serve the group’s housing and commercial developments and to provide grid-connected energy assets. The company’s technology focus is biomass combustion, anaerobic digestion and photovoltaics.
