Dulas Uses Natural Resources to Make Countries Fit to Live in; RENEWABLE ENERGY: Machynlleth-Based Company Is on the Brink of Developing a Solar Power Plant to Turn Seawater into Drinking Water
DULAS Ltd is currently completing the final stages of installing solar power roofs for the the Cantref Housing Association in Machynlleth.
The roofs will provide over 20kW of power for the tenants of the social housing project, which represents a significant proportion of the daily power requirements.
The project is the most recent in a list of installations that the company has completed in recent months.
Dulas installed photovoltaic roofs on the new Welsh Development Agency's units at the Dyfi Eco Parc in Machynlleth, as well as two other private properties in the Dyfi Valley area.
