Solar Photovoltaics (PV) technology silently converts sunlight into electricity during daylight hours. The energy arriving at the Earth from our star is sufficient to meet humanity’s need for electrical power many 1000s of times over. Even in a moderately sunny country like the UK it can already make a significant contribution to our energy needs. In time, solar PV, wind and other renewables in conjunction with other renewables in conjunction with other renewable batteries and other storage technologies will be able to provide all of our electricity.
Over the last 4 years Renewable Power has developed 90MW of field scale PV projects in the South West of the UK, all of which are now operational.
Now that the UK Government has decided to withdraw support for solar PV and most other forms of renewables, we have moved our focus to bring Solar PV and other Renewable Energy projects into Community Ownership, through our partner organisation Mongoose Energy Coop. Community Ownership is a “Democratisation” of energy and takes control away from the “Big 6” and other large corporations.
