In the heart of Gedling, a sustainable energy revolution is underway – and it’s powered by none other than the sun. Solar energy has indeed emerged as a game-changer in the pursuit of cleaner and more sustainable alternatives, especially in the UK. But what do you need to know about solar energy, and how does it really benefit your household or your business?

The basics

Solar energy, as we all know, is derived from the sun’s rays, which are harnessed through solar panels to generate electricity or heat water.

This eco-friendly energy source offers a renewable and abundant alternative to traditional fossil fuels.
