Raven Renewables worked with housing association Golding Homes, which manages over 8,000 affordable homes across Kent, to fit solar panels on their properties, enabling residents to reduce their energy bills.

About the project

After the government’s announcement that all social houses should meet an Energy Performance Certificate rating of ‘C’ or above by 2030, Golding Homes chose Raven Renewables to undertake its first renewables project, the installation of solar panels on 12 social housing properties in Maidstone.

Each solar system contained eight to ten high efficiency JA 370W monocrystalline panels, installed on the rear roof of the one-storey homes. The systems were expected to generate up to 2,775 kWh per year, with up to 535 kgC02e/pa carbon emissions savings per property.

This project was predicted to save residents up to £600 per year on their energy bills and make their homes much more energy efficient.
