Aberla delivers Solar PV for Herefordshire Council

Aberla Energy, part of the Aberla Group, has delivered a contract for Herefordshire Council, which included the design, supply and install of rooftop-mounted solar PV, enabling the Council to reduce its carbon footprint and energy expenditure.


Herefordshire Council is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2030/31, and declared a climate emergency in March 2019, since strengthened to a ‘climate and ecological emergency’.

Aberla’s team of experienced specialists have sustained a high-level of quality over the last decade, working on some of the most innovative projects across the UK. With Aberla’s knowledge and expertise, this solar PV scheme is an excellent example of a Council allocating resources to achieve its low-carbon objectives.

Benefits of installing the technology include:

  • Increased energy savings
  • Growth of low-carbon economy
  • Improvement of energy security as less dependency on grid power
  • Reduced fuel poverty
  • Reduced market volatility

This collaboration aligns with the Council’s initiative of “Re-energising Herefordshire”, as it looks to achieve its target of net-zero by 2030.

Cllr Ellie Chowns, cabinet member for environment, economy and skills said, “Herefordshire Council has been a local authority leader in addressing climate change for several years, working to reduce its own carbon footprint while leading countywide carbon reduction since 2003.

“Our new climate and ecological action plan demonstrates our commitment to reaching carbon zero by 2030 through a variety of means, one of the most important of which is continued investment in renewable energy, and we very much look forward to working with Aberla.”

Mark Ingham, managing director at the Aberla Group commented, “We are delighted to have delivered the contract for Herefordshire Council as it is important for us to partner with like-minded organisations. We look forward to developing the partnership with the Council.”

Herefordshire Council becomes the latest public sector organisation to collaborate with Aberla. Similar partnerships with Progress Housing and Cheshire West & Chester Council Northwards Housing enable Aberla to achieve its mission of delivering low-carbon energy infrastructure across the public sector.
