Buckingham based company SolarTech Ltd received the 2009 award from the National Home Improvement Council for “the best practice in renewable energy systems”
The award ceremony was hosted by Nick Raynsford MP and was held in the Gladstone Library, Whitehall.
SolarTech won the award for their project working with a number of Local Authorities aimed at helping vulnerable homeowners on a range of benefits, including income support, disability living allowance and working families tax credits.
