Solar has come a long way over the last decade, so much so that they are now considered as a viable alternative to generators.

And with the UK recently passing a law to end its contribution to global warming by 2050, through committing the UK to a legally binding target of net zero emissions by 2050, it is apparent that the tide is turning and solar power is becoming mainstream.
Over past few years there has been a significant move by leading UK construction organisations to reduce their carbon footprint. Many of these firms have set challenging targets to become zero carbon in operations, some in just a few years from now.
