Longley Tennis Club goes solar
Longley Tennis Club has now got a solar PV system just under the magic 4kWp level. Yet another PV system in the Newsome Ward! The club has had a lot of investment in recent years with a new club house (where the solar panels are) and refurbished tennis courts. This is down in large part to the efforts of Mr Geoff Durrans who has dedicated a lot of time and effort into reviving the club and sourcing funding from a number of pots. With a lot of uncertainty at the moment regarding the Feed In Tariff and threats of unsympathetic government policy reviews it is important that we get as many systems on roofs as possible.
