SNRG Praised After Supplying SmartGrid for Sustainable Housing

SNRG has supplied a solar and battery SmartGrid on behalf of the Hook Norton Community Land Trust (HNCLT) in Oxfordshire.

The development has been built by Greencore Homes and designed by Charlie Luxton, renowned TV presenter and sustainable architectural designer.

SNRG also collaborated with Hook Norton Low Carbon and the Hooky Car Club.

The Hook Norton project is a mixed-use new build and retrofit project.

There are 12 new passivhaus-standard homes – four houses and eight flats – plus a new community centre, cafe and two motel rooms.

An existing sports centre already had a large solar array, but couldn’t use all of the energy it produced.

SNRG integrated the sports centre into the SmartGrid, so that the excess solar could be used by the homes or stored in the battery.

This reduces the cost for the sports centre and residents.

SNRG will also manage 5 new EV chargers, powered by the SmartGrid, for the communal Hooky Car Club.

Dan Farmiloe, of Hook Norton Low Carbon, said: “ My own job role frequently interacts with the construction industry and infrastructure providers, and I can say without qualification that SNRG has been the best firm I have ever worked with on the delivery of a project such as the microgrid in Hook Norton.”

“Each and every person I have met from SNRG has been a delight to work with – attentive, considerate and proactive. I have personally really appreciated the deeply constructive nature of the working relationship

“As someone with a background in electrical infrastructure, I am impressed with the quality of the installation work done by SNRG.”
