Solar Made Easy



The Plan

The Castle Carrock, Brampton and Hallbankgate Parish Councils are liaising with Cumbria Action for Sustainability and Brampton 2 Zero to facilitate the process of the homes installing solar panels/ batteries – Solar Made Easy.

CAfS has kindly commissioned a “solar mapping” exercise for the village to determine the suitability of homes as potential sites for solar panels.

More information and the mapping links can be found here:

Informal preparation events:

If you are interested in seeing whether your property might have a viable roof-space please come along to review the mapping results for your home:
