Orphans - force of nature

Roof Solar Panels

We've had it mind for years, particularly on sunny days, but summer 2018 marks the great switch on of ... our roof! Solar panels were not in our minds when we were building new Orphans Press way back in 2007. Shame really, but it took a few years before we really took note of our very south facing expanse of roof. With other competing and compelling investment decisions to ponder, it has taken until now before we've found the right opportunity to go solar friendly. Once the decision to go sunny side up was made our friends at Caplor Energy were highly efficient and within a couple of weeks our roof was pretty well covered with panels. This isn't the place to describe how these things work, but suffice to say we are hoping they go quite some way to offsetting our enegy consumption. Since installation and at the time of writing every day has been a sunny day. Long may it continue.
