Solar panels go up on to the roof of Gloucestershire County Council

Another high profile rooftop solar installation is underway for Gloucestershire company, Mypower.

Off the back of the ground-breaking Gloucester Cathedral solar install last year, solar panel specialists have been commissioned for a 500 plus solar PV system at Shire Hall, Gloucestershire County Council's head office.

Work is already under way, with the first of three phases beginning this week and, like the cathedral, the council's solar PV system is invisible from the ground.

Ben Harrison, who heads up Mypower, said: "We have now installed solar on two of Gloucester's most important buildings.

"We would like to thank Mark Owen, MD of Moose Marketing and PR, for setting up the contact between Gloucestershire County Council / Kier Construction and Mypower.

"The first phase at Shire Hall will be completed in the next couple of weeks and they can look forward to generating their electricity from the sun and significantly cutting their costs over the next 25 plus years."

Based at Toddington, near Cheltenham, Mypower recently gained recognition for their work at the cathedral when they won the Highly Commended title in the Project Award category at the coveted British Renewable Energy Awards.

Moose also handled the PR campaign for Mypower for their installation of solar power at cathedral, which made national and international coverage.
