Final installation phase of Cornwall and Scillies Smart Energy Islands project

23rd November, 2019


We were proud to be selected as primary installer for the prestigious Hitachiled Cornwall and Scilly ‘Smart Energy Islands’ renewable energy project in 2018. This year we were asked back to complete the final installation phase of the project.

We offered a unique mix of skills to make the final installation work as quickly and easily as possible: our photovoltaic (PV) installation expertise, local knowledge and experience with battery storage systems, were an important element of the project. Six technicians went to the islands for the 6 month installation project, returning home at weekends.

Alice Clarke, our Solar Works Manager, says “It was great to be asked back to finish off a project that was so important to us last year, and really satisfying to see all the loose ends tied up. It was a treat to spend a bit more time on the Scillies too, and we all enjoyed the change of scenery. Even so, we were happy to sign the job off on time and on budget”.

More work is shaping up under the BEES Business Energy Efficiency Scheme. This provides businesses based on Scilly with 60% grant funding for energy efficiency improvements based on solar and other technologies. Any customers interested in this scheme should contact Alice for a chat.
