Exeter homes and businesses are set for a sunny future as a renewable energy firm expands into a brand new £250,000 showroom to cope with demand for sustainable energy systems in the region.

Solarlec has seen a surge in business across the South West over the past 12 months after setting up its Exeter branch last year, resulting in the company moving into a larger showroom site close to its previous premises in Marsh Barton.

Now, Solarlec – which specialises in solar PV, solar thermal and biomass systems – is set to unveil its brand new £250,000 showroom to the public as the Mayor of Exeter, Cllr Rachel Lyons, attends its official opening weekend this Friday, 29 November.

The event will also be attended by Andrew Watts from Sharp UK after Solarlec was announced as one of Sharp’s approved UK partners earlier this year.

Solarlec Exeter manager Philip Harris said: “The new premises represents a significant investment for us as we continue to see strong sales across the South West – it goes to show more and more home and business owners are wising up to the considerable financial benefits of renewable energy systems.

“We look forward to welcoming people from across the area to our opening day this Friday and Saturday to chat with our friendly, knowledgeable team about how they can significantly reduce their energy bills.”

The Solarlec Renewable Energy showroom, situated at 4 Venture Centre, Yeoford Way, Marsh Barton, features demonstration areas and user-friendly infographics on the financial and environmental benefits of switching to sustainable energy.

The showroom will be open to the public from 10am on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 November – customers can enjoy canapés, drinks and a prize draw to win £250 M&S vouchers from 11am on both days. For more information visit www.solarlec.com
