Solar Panel Contract signed this week.
The contract to install 66 solar edge panels on the covered shooting area has been signed this week. Over the next month the installation will be completed, 3 phase electricity supply installed and the remainder of our lighting converted to LED’s. We will then be producing more electricity than we use!
We are also looking to install a grey water system to supply our toilets
