Troy Town Farm

The most westerly installation in the UK, designed for an extremely exposed site.

This 4kWp installation at Troy Town Farm is definitely the most westerly installation in the UK. 

Situated on the West Coast of St Agnes the install uses sixteen GESOLAR all black modules. The modules look great on a slate roof and have the advantage of having additional salt resistance certification - crucial at this exposed site. The fixings used a lead slate and were spaced close together to allow for the extreme wind loading and driving rain. 

This is one of ten installations installed on St Agnes by Plug Into The Sun, which makes it proportionately the highest concentration of solar per community anywhere in the UK.
