Solar energy project for Eastlands Homes – 03/04/13

Eastlands Tropo

Henry Boot Construction’s Renewables Division, Tropo, has completed three solar PV projects on residential tower blocks owned by Eastlands Homes in Manchester.

The tower blocks in the Bickerdike, Platt and Worsley areas of Manchester now include solar photovoltaic panels on their roofs which will generate free electricity for the client.

This electricity will be used to offset Eastlands Homes’ supply that powers lifts and lights in communal areas.

The project took under one week to complete with the Tropo team installing four SMA Tripower inverters and a total of 219 Polycrystalline modules (panels).

Henry Boot Construction’s Western Divison undertook the internal and external refurbishments of the three blocks in 2012.

“Added together, the tower blocks have the potential to offset 21.2 tonnes of CO2 per annum and deliver 40,408 kWH of power. We anticipate that Eastlands Homes will recoup their investment within 12 to 13 years for each site.”
