With ever increasing electricity prices, why dont you invest in your own Solar system? You will be paid 43.3p for every unit which you generate, this payment is Tax Free, indexed linked and guaranteed for 25 years. In addition any electricity you generate can be used for free; off-setting the high price of electricity which you currently pay. A typical 4kw installation on a south facing roof, will generate 1,500 per annum in FIT payments and 500 worth of savings on your electricity bill. All of our installations benefit from a comprehensive 5 year guarantee and a 25 year module performance warrantee, this coupled with our seven day a week local technical support, gives you the peace of mind that only a quality local company can bring to you.</p><p> Generate FREE electricity &amp; reduce your energy bills</p><p> Guaranteed income for 25 years</p><p> Get paid 43.3p for every kilowatt of electricity you generate</p><p> Free no obligation quotations</p><p> MCS &amp; REAL Qualified</p><p> 25 year Module performance warranty</p><p> Kingsnorth Offices and Customer Solar Demonstration Facility</p><p> Full technical support 7 days a week</p><p>Helping You to Save and Make Money with Clean, Green Solar Energy</p><p>Fully Qualified and Accredited MCS, REAL Installation Engineers</p><p>Call us on 01233 612082Court Lodge Manor, Kingsnorth, Ashford, Kent, TN23 3JE</p><p>Email: info@greenmansolar www.greenmansolar.comOur Solar PV array and its real time performance can be viewed online at http://goo.gl/LZbWj</p><p>A professional installation from start to finish, no hidden extras and extremely well priced when compared with National Companies, a larger system installed for less than other quotations which from day one is earning money both in Feed in Tariff payments and reduction in daytime electricity (60% reduction on day one) - Have no reservations in recommending GreenmanSolar to anyone thinking of having a Solar system installed.Derek, Park Farm. </p><p>Harness the Free Power of the Sun with Greenman Solar</p></li><li><p>35 WelcometoLittlestoneGolfClub</p><p>7 TheClub</p><p>11 TheHistoryofLittlestone</p><p>12 TakeaTouroftheChampionshipCourse</p><p>17 LittlestoneWarrenGolfCourse</p><p>18 AndrewJonesPGAProfessional</p><p>19 TheProfessionalShop</p><p>23 GolfCoaching</p><p>25 MembershipCategories</p><p>29 CompetitiveGolf</p><p>31 OpenEvents</p><p>33 VisitorsandSocieties</p><p>35 ClubhouseandRestaurant</p><p>37 CorporateDays</p><p>38 HowtoFindUsandContactUs</p><p>PhotographybyLukeYates(wayaheadphotography.com),ClairFowleratDualFocusPhotographyandLittlestoneGolfClub</p><p>www.pinnacle.uk.com T: 08707 707 765 E: info@pinnacle.uk.com Littlestone Golf Club and Pinnacle wish to thank the businesses who appear in this publication for their support and wish them every success in deriving business from its circulation.
