UK’s largest residential solar rooftop project operating for a single social housing association

New Charter Homes, Manchester, UK

6.87 MW

The largest rooftop residential solar project in the UK, in partnership with a single social housing association. GES has installed 27,000 panels on nearly 2,700 social houses owned by New Charter Homes.

New Charter Homes is based in Greater Manchester and owns over 19,500 homes. These are provided for families and individuals, including the elderly and financially vulnerable. We worked closely with New Charter Homes to select most optimal roofs for installations, optimal in terms of angle and direction, in order to maximize the panel’s effectiveness.

The tenants benefit directly by having reduced electricity expenses. A significant annual discount of up to £400 is expected on electricity bills in each household. And over 80,000 tones carbon emission will be prevented over the next 25 years.
