Southern Solar began in 2002 with a vision of a future where solar energy creates a decentralised energy revolution, to power our communities. For 10 years they have been actively helping communities across the UK to develop their own projects to realise this vision. They are specialists in the design, installation and maintenance of solar thermal and solar electrical systems and have built a strong reputation by delivering high quality, competitively priced systems for commercial, public sector and domestic clients across the South of the UK.
Rather than the system we currently have; with large centralised power stations providing for our energy needs, Southern Solar see our installations as part of a distributed power station. A power station that changes the rules – it’s owned by you for a start and the energy it provides comes from the environment directly around your building.
Firm believers that small actions can have big effects, they encourage all who come across them to be part of the change. Simple changes in behaviour can have a large impact – particularly if enough of us do them. The goal of reducing our carbon emissions dramatically over the coming decades looks very challenging. Southern Solar gladly accept this challenge and feel very positive about it. In the last 10 years they have have assisted many people to halve their carbon emissions. Through championing community solar projects Southern Solar aims to place the ownership of energy production in local hands.
