Viridian Solar announces that it has signed an exclusive supply agreement with Ogilvie Homes. The group deal, which runs until the end of 2020, means the leading Scottish housebuilder will use Clearline Fusion roof integrated solar PV modules on homes where solar is required.

Ogilvie Homes is a family-owned business and one of several industry sectors that together form the Ogilvie Group, ranging from construction to vehicle contract rental. They build around 250 homes each year, predominantly in the central belt of Scotland and as a family business understand the importance of developing homes that reflect today’s family lifestyles.

Stuart Elmes, CEO of Viridian Solar said:

"Building regulations for energy efficiency in Scotland are more challenging than those in England and Wales, and fitting solar panels is a great way to deliver homes with low energy bills. We are seeing more and more leading housebuilders, businesses like Ogilvie Homes, taking control of the quality, aesthetics and durability of the solar that is installed in the homes they build and opting for high quality roof integrated solar."

Ewen Ross, Commercial Director at Ogilvie Homes, said:

"Ogilvie Home builds spacious homes with unique character, aspirational style and high levels of craftsmanship. Each home is built to last with beautiful interior and exterior designs, we take great care and attention to the environment and installation of energy efficient technology. These requirements apply just as much to the solar panels we use in our homes, and Clearline fusion from Viridian Solar absolutely fits the bill for aesthetics and quality."
