The deals will see the housebuilders using the Viridian’s solar roofing system on all new homes where there is a requirement for solar PV panels.
National housebuilder, Persimmon Homes, has renewed its existing national supply agreement. First signed in December 2017, the deal has been extended through to 2021. In the 15-month period since the original supply agreement was signed, projects comprising more than 4,000 homes across 85 development sites have come forward, requiring 6MWp of solar, or around 22,000 panels.
McTaggart Group, a diversified construction company, has also chosen Clearline fusion from Viridian Solar. The McTaggart Construction division builds around 500 new homes each year, with a focus on the affordable housing sector.
Jamie Berryman, Sales Director at Viridian Solar said: “It’s a real vote of confidence in Viridian Solar that these two great companies have chosen Clearline fusion for their solar roofing work. Clearline fusion’s high quality and value clearly ticks all the boxes for both social rented properties and private sale.”
Jamie Bursnell, Group Technical Adviser at Persimmon Homes said: “We were already convinced about the reputation of Viridian Solar’s roof integrated solar panels for aesthetics, quality and reliability. What the last year of working together has demonstrated is that this is backed up with excellent technical support, site design and layout optimisation that the company offers our technical and construction teams.”
Paul Roan, Commercial Director at McTaggart Group said: “We have already used Clearline fusion roof integrated solar on a number of our housing developments and have been impressed with the excellent aesthetics and simple installation. Roof integrated solar gives our clients better looking homes with simple future roofing maintenance and avoids problems from nesting birds.”
