2022 is now upon us. It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were in 2019, but the last 18-24 months have really flown by. If you work in the construction industry, or in the renewable energy sector, you will have followed the future housing standards Part L regulations quite closely, to see what this will mean for you and your business.
From July 2022, there will be a major uplift in the efficiency of new builds across England. The focus will be on a fabric first approach, and then met with renewable energy sources like solar tiles and wind turbines. Whilst we can’t help you with wind, we can certainly help you with all things solar related.
So, let’s get down to it……
Solar is now the cheapest way to generate electricity. Let’s look at this logically! We all know that the sun will rise tomorrow, don’t we? So, it only makes sense that we take advantage of this known fact, and harness it where possible. Surely this makes sense to you!
Something else that we can agree on is that every property needs a roof! Yes? Great! That’s 2 for 2 that we are on the same page with. Surely, it would then make sense to look that this as a developer and conclude that it just makes sense to either install solar tiles in the roof at the time of construction, or at least leave it where the roof is solar ready for the homeowner to be able to do this, without compromising the aesthetics or roof weight in the future.
This is where the fully patented Nulok roofing system comes into play. There are many benefits to what we offer, and I think that it’s important that we go through these, as it will make your decision more of a no brainer.
Firstly, putting solar panels on top of your slate or tiled roof just doesn’t make any sense anymore. Why cover the same areas twice? This is a waste of a tradesman’s time and a major waste of materials. It also looks terrible and stands out like a sore thumb! Don’t get me wrong, the solar panels will still generate electricity and reduce your carbon footprint, but there are now better ways to achieve this. Just look at the picture below. Which would you prefer?
