Viridian Solar and Bellway announce the extension of their partnership with the signing of a new National Supply Agreement that will see Clearline fusion roof-integrated solar systems installed on many new homes built by Bellway. For every solar panel installed by Bellway, Viridian Solar has also pledged to plant two trees under its Fusion Forest programme.

With a partnership going back to 2019, this new agreement extends out to 2024, preparing the ground for an uplift to the Building Regulations for energy efficiency in England and Wales in 2022 which will see solar on many more homes built in these countries than is currently the case.

Jamie Berryman, CSO at Viridian Solar said:

"So far, the majority of our work with Bellway has been in Scotland, where more demanding energy regulations mean that most new homes now come with solar PV panels as standard. We look forward to working closely with colleagues at Bellway to extend our successful collaboration to more of the regions as new regulations kick in."

Adrian Hill, Group Head of Procurement at Bellway said:

"We have been extremely happy with the support, site design and layout optimisation that Viridian Solar has provided to our technical teams since we began our partnership. Clearline fusion has made adoption of solar PV straightforward for both our technical and construction teams. Its high wind resistance, achieved without modification to the roof structure, gives us confidence to install across the UK while the proprietary fixing kits will help us ensure durable, safe and compliant installations every time. We are pleased to continue this association."
