SummaryA large social housing scheme in Nottingham is making use of photovoltaic (PV) installations in its new build bungalows for elderly and disabled occupants. Corncroft has one of the largest concentrations of PV in the UK with half of the dwellings in the development incorporating PV. The buildings were designed to be low energy, with features such as low ā€˜eā€™ glass and very high levels of insulation alongside the PV installations. The PV systems were installed with support from the Domestic Field Trials (DFT).
