It is the intention of Solva CLT to provide environmentally low-impact housing, ideally zero carbon, allowing for the most up-to-date technologies to be used in both the build and the ongoing functions of the properties.

To explore some of the possible technologies, on 3 February members of the Solva CLT Board visited Western Solar’s prototype solar house Tŷ Solar® at Rhosygilwen.  The house consumes just 12% of the energy of a traditional house.
