Solar panels

After several years in the planning, last week we finally got our small solar panel array installed! At 6kW it has less generation capacity than we would like, but we hope that it will provide one third of the farm's energy consumption, and that is a good step towards self-sufficiency.
Our small solar array, in between the market garden and the chicken sheds.
Finishing the array in early January meant lots of work on the cold wet days of the festive period, so many thanks go to the installers, and in particular Rob Pickering, for working outside in the bad weather.
Concrete plinths laid ready for the panels.

Erecting the frames.
