Western Solar has pioneered the use of solar energy for housing in West Wales. We built the first solar park in Wales – now generating energy to power 500 homes. We designed and built Tŷ Solar® – a prototype solar house that consumes just 12% of the energy of a traditional house. And then we built Wales’ first solar hamlet of affordable homes – which is now home to six families and is run by ATEB.

We are currently working in partnership with ATEB, Coastal Housing Association, Pembrokeshire County Council and others to build some 50 more affordable homes in north Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire. Elsewhere in this website you will find both details of our achievements to date and what we are doing to help respond to the urgent need for a carbon free future. Towards Zero – easy on the pocket, easy on the planet!


Western Solar is a company that’s dedicated to manufacturing ultra-low-energy affordable homes built on sustainable principles and the desire to alleviate energy poverty in housing.
