Stockport Homes – SHINE project
Installation of 950 x 2kWp PV installations in Trafford Housing Trust domestic social housing, plus 28 5–50kWp commercial systems fitted to local authority administration and public buildings.
For installation of a 50kWp on 7-storey Stopford House, we used a 65-tonne crane to lift panels and rails onto the roof. On some properties, contractor Group Four Security ensured installation safety. For some domestic properties, residents’ concerns were addressed when the scaffolding contractor realigned satellite dishes to ensure continues service, replacing them once the work was complete.
A dedicated Resident Liaison Officer ensured resident acceptance of the work, and provided advice and guidance on how best to use and benefit from the new solutions.
