Top solar panel firm backs our renewables event
An award-winning solar panel installation company is to sponsor a flagship renewable energy event.
Freewatt is supporting the Green Energy Lincs conference, being staged on Tuesday, November 20.
The event, taking place at the EPIC Centre, Lincolnshire Showground, is aimed at raising awareness of the business and financial opportunities surrounding renewables.
Energy Minister John Hayes will open the conference.
Stow-based Freewatt, established four years ago, is a leading solar photovoltaic (PV) design and installation company, working across Lincolnshire and other counties.
Managing director Julian Patrick said the company was pleased to be supporting Green Energy Lincs, which will help showcase the benefits of renewables to a wide audience.
He said: "As solar PV installers, we see the huge potential of renewable energy in Lincolnshire – especially as the county is one of the hardest hit when it comes to fuel poverty.
"There are many benefits and opportunities surrounding green energy for businesses to consider, especially in terms of generating their own electricity, gaining an additional income and reducing their costs."
Earlier this year, Freewatt won the Renewables Award and was named the county's top large business of the year at the Lincolnshire Media Business Awards.
Representatives of the company will join other renewables experts speaking at Green Energy Lincs.
Green Energy Lincs is being run by Lincolnshire Media – publisher of the Echo – and Footprint Renewables.
