Our Solar Installations


                    Hertha and the Exeter Central Library installation

The great news is we now have four installations completed, commissioned and generating solar energy. After a very hectic run-up to Christmas, Great Moor House and Exeter Central Library were successfully installed and started to provide solar energy, joining Shillingford Organics and Wonford Community and Learning Centre, which were completed in November.
