New Solar at Hilfield Friary

Hilfield’s solar installation has now been generating for over a month, in the period when the days are shortest. The pictures show Francis House’s west roof, with Leo House’s south roof in the background, giving a spread of power throughout the day. The graph shows daily power being produced since the beginning on 8th December on these roofs. Note how the Francis House panels now replace an earlier piece of technology, the 2 brick chimneys built in 1888 and removed in c. 2011. The other picture shows panels on the much flatter chip store roof, to power the boiler house and workshops.  For further details, describing how the European Regional Development Fund helped  it possible, see the article below.
