September PV1 Update

Solar PV1

We are very happy to announce that we have signed a Heads of Terms agreement with Exeter College for a 150kWp installation at their Technology Centre on Cumberland Way. There is still a lot to work to do but this is a significant step after a long process of developing an attractive enough business offer. We are now organising quotes from our preferred installers and feed-in-tariff pre-accreditation for the site as quickly as possible – it is expected the government will remove the pre-accreditation mechanism at some point in September.

We are still investigating alternative possibilities at Shilingford Organics, and proceeding with lease negotiations at Wonford Community and Learning Centre. There is also a chance that other sites belonging to Piper’s Farm, Devon & Somerset Fire and Rescue Service and Unison will be included in our first share offer, which we can now start thinking about again in earnest.

AND… we’ve also launched this short film to promote Solar PV1 and particularly to inform potential roof partners. There is still time for more roof owners to get in touch with us and be part of our first portfolio of roofs. Thanks to Nick Gordon for producing the film – now please share it on social media, send it to roof owners, governors of schools, community centres etc.
