Solar panels installed onto the Grain Store roof at Alland Grange, 2012.
These provide power for the grain drying fans and surplus electricity to feed the National Grid.
The project is a government supported 'Green' initiative to promote renewable energy.
The technology is in its infancy, but hopefully will contribute to the efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
It will be some years before we can assess the success (or otherwise) of the project.
