Solar-thermal technology is the key to achieving Code Level 3 for this development in Wiltshire.

Baxi Group has helped Selwood Housing meet Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes with a comprehensive heating and hot-water solution feature solar-thermal technology. The development of seven homes in Melksham, Wiltshire, comprises terraced and semi-detached houses with two and three bedrooms.

Working with Baxi’s new-design services, the housing association explored possible solutions and specified Solarflow panels in the roof, Megaflo unvented indirect solar cylinders and Megaflo System HE boilers for each dwelling. Local contractor CJ Deighton & Co. installed the systems.

Paul Walsh, development director at Selwood Housing, says, ‘We have a long-standing relationship with Baxi Group, and this particular project progressed extremely smoothly from start to finish. The Solarflo panels have proved instrumental in achieving our target Level 3 under the code. They are easy to fit and link up well with the unvented indirect solar cylinders and system boilers to provide a complete solution.’
