Solar PV

The solar PV industry has been through a rollercoaster ride from start to change of feed-in tariff. Participants will hear how the company adopted itself to drastic changes and keep the company on a growth track.

Local Case Study presented by Freewatt Ltd

Freewatt Ltd is Lincolnshire's first and only bespoke solar PV installer. After initially offering the entire renewable product range of wind turbines, heat pumps and anaerobic digestion the company focussed very early on the solar PV market. With a focus on high quality material throughout the installation process matched by highly skilled personel they were able to attract customers from all directions. Public buildings like schools and universities, housing associations or Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue are customers as well as domestic and commercial buildings. One speciality they have is historic buildings, i.e. churches and Grade 2 listed buildings. The company has a strong ethical background and has developed - with the support of SC iNet - an education package in reference to solar PV. In close co-operation with Bishop Grosseteste University College this educational package is available not only to schools, but also to public libraries and other educational bodies.
