About The Solar Shed - Norfolk renewable energy installations

Award winning former Police Officer, Kevin Holland gave it all up in search for the good life. He moved with his family to a 15th Century Cottage on the Banks of the River Great Ouse in Norfolk and set about renovating and retro-fitting the cottage into a cost free living environment. After 8 years in home improvements, renewable energy design, survey and sales he has transformed the old Fisherman's Barn at the bottom of the garden into a renewable energy workshop and advice centre where customers can come try before they buy a whole range of renewable energy options.
