Two events surrounding the theme of Solar Independence Day are to take place at the beginning of July, organised by Forster Group.

Events are being organised across the UK to showcase installed solar systems and to give the public the opportunity to find out more about the benefits of going solar.

In Aberdeenshire, the event is to be held at Pitmedden Garden in Ellon on July 4, with three sessions taking place at 11am, 12 noon and 1pm. Forster would encourage anyone who is interested to come and visit the solar rooftop on the National Trust for Scotland's Pitmedden Garden in Aberdeenshire to find out more about how solar can be incorporated into historic buildings and help reduce energy bills and running costs for these jewels in our national heritage.

Visitors can visit the solar installation for free, and are welcome to then tour the gardens and tea room thereafter. (Note that the National Trust for Scotland charge a small entry fee to the gardens).

Looking further afield, the second event takes place at Cronan Farm, Coupar Angus, on July 3 at 10am and 11am. Attendees will be able to find out more about how farm building rooftops like this one can generate clean, green electricity to power such warehouses and save farmers money on thier energy bills.
