A Solarsense PV installation on a holiday home in Croyde has been awarded "Domestic rooftop installation of the Year" at the national Solar Power Portal Awards 2014.
The awards, judged by a panel of industry experts and leaders from the solar, renewable and business worlds, recognise and commend good practice, professionalism, quality, safety and innovation, with the aim of being a marker of the brightest and best that UK solar has to offer.
Stephen Barrett, Director, said: "It's a real honour to win this award. We've been installing solar for more than 20 years so it's great that our hard work and innovation continues to be recognised in this way".
