In February 2020 Genfit delivered a 60kWp community funded PV system at Neston Recreation Centre on behalf of Chester Community Energy, in partnership with Brio Leisure and CWAC. This was the culmination of 12 months of preparation, planning and fund raising and resulted in two sites being successfully installed by Genfit in just 9 consecutive working days. The solar generated will be supplied to the centre under a power purchase agreement, resulting in significant cost saving’s to the centre and provides an income to CCEL.
