Solar for Developers

Helping you acheive Code 4 Building Regulations

Farm Building SolarPV Plus are fully aware of the changes in Building Regulations and the move towards sustainable homes. We have vast experience in Solar design and installation and offer a comprehensive service. PV is the simplest renewable technology option to install. PV can be designed into the building or added as a remedial measure to help a non-compliant building to pass building regulations. We are experienced in new build installations, have a fantastic reputation and work hard to meet your timescales, requirements and budgets. We are more than happy to arrange a free site visit or you can call us for a chat to discuss your options. Contact Us.

Code level 3

A home will need to be 25% more energy efficient compared to Part L 2006. This will require low carbon technologies such as Photovoltaic or (PV) modules. Current status – Mandatory for Social Housing since 2008. Mandatory for all private housing development since April 2010

Code level 4
A 44% improvement over 2006 part L Building Regulations must be achieved. This will usually require some PV modules.Current status – Mandatory for Social Housing since April 2010. Mandatory for all private housing development from April 2012

Code level 5
Requires a 100% improvement over 2006 part L Building Regulations. This will require all electricity to be provided from on-site renewable sources including Photovoltaic (PV) modules. As most urban and sub-urban sites will not be suitable for wind turbines, PV will proliferate as the best technology to guarantee these targets.

Code level 6
Zero-Carbon will also require PV panels in order to replace entirely the energy taken from the national grid. The additional points to achieve a six-star rating must require investment in energy efficient appliances, reduction of surface water run-off, and the application of a site waste-management plan. Current status – Mandatory for all in 2016

The code for sustainable homes is the national standard for the sustainable design and construction of new homes. It aims to reduce carbon emissions and promote higher standards of sustainable design above the current minimum standards set out by the building regulations.

The code provides 9 measures of sustainable design:

  • energy/CO2
  • water
  • materials
  • surface water runoff (flooding and flood prevention)
  • waste
  • pollution
  • health and well-being
  • management
  • ecology

It uses a 1 to 6 star system to rate the overall sustainability performance of a new home against these 9 categories.

The code can be enforced are where:

  • local councils require developers to comply with the code by including a requirement in their planning policy
  • affordable housing is funded by the Homes and Community Agency that requires homes to be built to code level 3
  • the level 3 energy standard is now incorporated in the building regulations

The code for sustainable homes: technical guide sets out the requirements of the latest version of the code, and how a code assessment is reached.

The code for sustainable homes: latest official statistics shows the number of homes that have been certified to the standards set out in the code’s technical guide.

The cost of building to the code for sustainable homes: updated cost review sets out the changing costs of code levels in comparison with previous years.

The code for sustainable homes: case studies provide examples of new homes that have built using the code. They show how the homes have been designed, planned and built and what they are like to live in.
