Enphase teams with Saving Energy for UK housing solar project

Enphase Energy is partnering with Saving Energy, based at Wickford to bring solar power to residents of a major social housing project.

Backed by Northumberland Aged Mineworkers Homes Association, the effort will provide the residents of the Aging Miners project with solar photovoltaic systems.

The Northumberland 1MWp DC will have nearly 4,000 microinverters provided by Enphase.

It is projected for completion by the end of 2014 with an approximate generation of 1,038,800 kilowatt-hours every year.


Installers cannot compromise on the quality and safety of the Enphase System. With its simplicity, the work can be done in a safe manner across rooftops, even for properties that are close together, said, Grant Speller, renewable energy manager, Saving Energy.

They provide greater yields even in the climate of the North East, and greater control for the client in assessing how a resident’s system is performing. The retired miners are all very positive about the work going on here and are keen to benefit at a time when energy bills are soaring, Speller continued.

Saving Energy aims to help local residents with renewable-energy electricity generation with this work. Through this partnership, the company can install and commission custom solar PV systems that maximize roof space in order to provide the maximum rate of return on investment.

Enphase has entered the UK PV market only two years ago.
