Herefordshire-based renewable installer, Caplor Energy, has installed an 8.8kWp solar array on the roof of the Great Orme visitors’ centre in Llandudno, Wales.

The array is the latest in a series of energy efficiency improvements to the centre as part of Conwy County Council’s carbon neutral sustainability strategy. To date, the centre’s hot water supply system and internal lighting have all been improved alongside the new solar array.

The 60 module system was selected by the council due to its unobtrusive nature when viewed against the building’s slate tiles. The solar array is expected to slash 4.5 tonnes of CO2 off the tourist attraction’s carbon footprint every year, significantly reducing its operating costs in the process.

Conwy Council’s property and asset services manager, Tony Cannon: commented ‘Following a Communities and Nature grant award, we elected to fit solar PV on the Great Orme Visitors Centre. We tendered the installation through Sell2Wales and Caplor were the successful Contractor, who completed the installation in one week and all to the highest quality.’
