It won't just be Pips Poundbury 's customers who will benefit from the sunny weather this summer… 😎

During the build of this café & community space on #TheGreatField in #Poundbury - we helped Alcohol Education Trust install solar panels on the roof and battery storage inside. So the charity really will be making the most of Dorset's sunshine this year ☀️ 🔋

And on those cooler days, when customers crave a warming bowl of soup, the #PiP will be heated by an air-source heat pump!

Read more about the project and the #LowCarbonHeroes behind it in the NEW case study on our website: https://orlo.uk/PiP_CaseStudy_ZQO5e
