How Cool is That?
At the Dyfi Eco Business Park in Machynlleth in North Wales you will find the coolest bike shed you’ve ever seen. The park is right next to the railway station and is a great place, very attractive buildings (for a business park), a huge PV array, but the most delightful thing there was this little bike shed. As you approach it it looks like a curved PV panel, get round the back and it’s a bike shed! What a great application of the permaculture principle of ‘Multiple Function’.
Not sure that a PV array that small will generate that much, but it is a beautiful thing and makes a great statement. This is a great example of how we need to present renewables, as stylish, functional, beautiful parts of everyday life. Coming to a town near you?
