Local housebuilder Larkfleet Homes is using its Market Deeping-based sister company Lark Energy to include photovoltaic solar panels as standard on houses in the new phase of its development at Pinchbeck.
Already Larkfleet has been offering buyers the choice of having solar panels fitted as an optional extra on other local developments.
Adding them as standard at Pinchbeck is a step further along the company’s commitment to the use of renewables and sustainable construction methods in building the most energy-efficient houses possible, which could save purchasers up to £600 a year on fuel bills.
Lark Energy was launched in 2010 by Bourne parent company the Larkfleet Group. It designs and installs solar PV solutions of all sizes and has become a market leader, having developed three of the UK’s largest solar farms.
Larkfleet Homes says it can’t provide PV solar panels as standard everywhere, but aims to offer renewable technologies on as many developments as possible in the future.
Larkfleet managing director Karl Hick said: “Our properties are built with energy-efficiency in mind and are designed to benefit homeowners for years to come.
“We’re proud to be setting a high standard in the local area and will continue to look at new sustainable building methods to provide our homebuyers with energy-efficient homes.”
Larkfleet Homes is currently building at Bourne, Pinchbeck and Deeping.
