An award winning renewable energy company from the county is on a roll after securing another major solar PV installation project.
Saving Energy North East, based in Ashington, has been awarded a new contract to install solar panels to up to 1,000 council properties in Darlington well into the New Year.
The company will work alongside Cumbrian based solar PV specialists Global Heat Source to deliver the programme.
The scheme invites council tenants in Darlington to sign up for free solar PV installed to their properties.
Managing director, Garry Coulson, said: “We are delighted to be working on this project which will see tenants significantly reduce their bills by up to 50 per cent.”
“Our mission when establishing the company was to help bring the most vulnerable people out of fuel poverty whilst helping to save the environment through reducing carbon emissions – and its contract wins like this that allows us to do just that.
“We hope that the residents will grab this opportunity while it lasts.”
