Solar Green have recently installed Solar Hot Water systems on a new development
for the Sanctuary Housing Association in Haringey. The systems will provide hot water
for the tenants of the affordable housing scheme for years to come. Since 2007 Housing
Associations receiving public funding have been obliged to ensure that their developments
conform to the Code for Sustainable Homes.
The Building Code which currently affects the design and construction of Social Housing
only will eventually impact all housing by 2013. The Code for Sustainable Homes sets
out a 6 tier system aimed at constructing well designed, well constructed buildings
with minimal impact to the environment.
The Code has been causing headaches for building designers and developers alike,
unsure of how to achieve these stringent new standards in Sustainable Design. Solar
Green were delighted to be able to offer its wealth of experience in Solar Energy
on this particular development to help achieve the Carbon reductions required by
Solar Hot Water provides one of the more affordable solutions which can be fitted
with ease to virtually any building and as demonstrated here can make a real impact
on the Carbon Footprint of a building.
Solar Hot Water
Is the process of using daylight to generate heat from roof mounted collectors the
heat is then transferred to provide hot water. The technology has a very long heritage
which has been developed over decades and is proving to be an affordable means of
reducing a buildings energy demand and reducing its carbon footprint.

it’s experience in Solar energy can be traced back to 1996. This experience is widely
recognised in the industry and the company counts amongst it’s partners; Sharp, Schuco
