Lifton Farm Shop is a family run business which has seen huge growth over the last 20 years.

Solar Panel Installation
Situated on the Cornwall/Devon border the farm shop attracts people from all over the South West to enjoy the locally grown and sourced produce. In 2011 the business decided to invest in solar and instructed Solgen to install a 50kWp solar pv system to help reduce the shops ever growing energy demands. Such was the success of this array that Solgen were commissioned to install an additional 200kWp ground mounted array in 2014. This combined system along with a 5ookWp wind turbine installed on the site have increased the farm shops green credentials and secured its long term future while reducing its demand on the grid.
