Work in Progress

FEP are close to finalising a grant application to WRAP for the first stages of work to secure 2+MW of larger scale PV on rooftops in the Fal area. As the subsidy regime is drastically reduced we are going to be restricted to roof tops where the building use requires large amounts of daytime electricity. Cornwall now has nearly 30% of its electricity demand met from local renewables which has an impact on the availability of local grid connections. This reinforces the need for roof tops of significant electricity users. Schools, swimming pools, hotels, manufacturing facilities, supermarkets, large offices, food processing and storage warehouses are all likely to be suitable locations. Unfortunately it also restricts the PV potential for village halls, churches and social facilities.
