Solar Streets

Solar Streets operated in two streets in the Bear Flat area of Bath. We installed solar pv and batteries and tested a community approach to electricity demand management.

It was part of the OpenLV programme which made local electricity data openly available for the first time ever, to benefit local communities and the wider energy industry.
