Real estate investment firm FORE Partnership has joined hands with global solar photovoltaic company, Sunpreme, for its Bifacial Smart Solar Panels.

The company’s highly sustainable office development on Mount Street will feature Bifacial Smart Solar Panel, developed by Sunpreme based in California, US.

These solar panels absorb light from both sides increasing energy yield (kWh) per kWp and generating additional electricity through reflective and diffuse light.

FORE is the first real estate developer in the UK to use Sunpreme solar panels, having also installed them at its Yorkshire House building in Leeds and at 58 Victoria Embankment in London.

Commenting on the development, FORE Managing Partner, Basil Demeroutis said, “Windmill Green is set to become Manchester’s most sustainable multi-let office building when it opens its doors later this summer. We have used Sunpreme solar PV in multiple commercial rooftop locations and they have incredible consistency, even with the mixed weather we can get in the UK. Given the reduction in feed-in tariffs, we need to find new ways to make the economics of installing solar PVs pay, and Sunpreme does exactly that.”

“We are really pleased to have forged such a channel partnership with Sunpreme. They have an incredible reputation for innovation and world class quality, and we really want to push such innovative technologies on all of FORE’s one million plus square feet of real estate,” Demeroutis added.

Meanwhile, the energy generated will be used to power all of the lighting in the seven-storey building on the corner of Windmill Street and Mount Street in the city centre.
