United Healthcare Developments installs solar panels at eight of its UK medical centres

Specialist healthcare developer, United Healthcare Developments (UHD) has installed 284Kw photovoltaic solar panels on eight of its medical centres in the UK.

The company has a policy of continually upgrading and reinvesting into its buildings and long-term its aim is to reduce carbon emissions across its entire portfolio.

David Brown, managing director, said: “We are fully committed to creating sustainable and futureproof buildings and in recent months have invested more than £500,000 into making our premises more energy efficient.

“We’ve had a terrific response from the doctors as the retrofitted schemes are now producing up to a third of the buildings’ electricity requirements, resulting in considerable cost savings.”

Microgeneration power is now a ‘built-in’ to all UHD’s developments and the company’s latest scheme in Oldham has achieved BREEAM’ Excellent’ status along with an impressive EPC ‘A’ Rating of 12.
