A Shade Greener Ltd is a Renewable Electricity Generator based in South Yorkshire. We want to promote solar energy that is accessible to everyone. Up until now only the wealthy could afford solar panels, however, due to new legislation that will take effect from April 2010, which will provide us with guaranteed income for the electricity our panels will generate, we are able to fit free solar panels onto any roof that is suitable. Now nearly everyone can have access to free electricity all year round.
