On July 3-4, locations across the UK will once again be opening their doors to showcase PV to the public for Solar Independence Day.

The biggest event will be taking place in Ashington, Northumberland, where almost 400 homes have had PV installed on their roofs, but 15 locations in all from Dorset right up to Aberdeenshire will be welcoming visitors over the two days.

Paul Barwell, CEO of the Solar Trade Association, said: “Solar Independence Day will show how versatile this technology is. We’ve got everything from a housing estate in Northumberland to a stately home in Aberdeenshire, a community solar farm in Hampshire to a waste facility in Berkshire, all generating clean, green home-grown electricity.”
