Heartlands - A Pioneering Community Project

Heartlands - A Pioneering Community Project

Heartlands community regeneration Solar PV project

In 2012 R-ECO became part of a ground breaking community project based in the heart of Cornwall.  The 33 Million pound big lottery funded project, named “Heartlands” regenerated a dilapidated mining area in Pool Cornwall into a “cultural playground” for the local community and visitors. The Heartlands buildings include business units, performance and events spaces, community facilities, a museum, local produce café and restaurant and residential accommodation, and are striving to create a carbon neutral environment through the contribution of R-ECO’s BIPV (Buildings Integrated Photovoltaic).

It is a one-of-a-kind, amazingly innovative and ground breaking project, allowing the transformation of an icon from a bygone era, without  loss of its integrity, into a new sustainable environment from both a social and technological point of view.

Heartlands now boast a 67 KW BIPV system thanks to R-ECO which will produce 1.4 million KW in its 25 year lifespan.

The Heartlands project was another addition to R-ECO’s growing number of community based projects which the company are passionate about.
