Summary25 flats in a low-rise block provide social housing within Westerhope in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Newcastle County Council (NCC) initiated a program of refurbishment which included re-roofing. This posed an ideal opportunity to integrate PV systems at the same time as combining it with other improvement work – including an upgrade of insulation, fire-stopping and an extensive over-hall of the external fabric of the building. The PV systems were installed with support from the Domestic Field Trials (DFT).
