BUSINESS partners Chris Hopkins and Deborah Meaden attended the recent Homebuilding and Renovating Show at the NEC, Birmingham.

The Brighouse businessman runs renewables company Ploughcroft and secured backing from Deborah and Theo Paphitis when he appeared on TV’s Dragon’s Den in 2011.

Ploughcroft gave a solar roofing demonstration at the show and gave advice about installations and the Feed-In Tariff.

“We’ve done lots of solar roof demos before, but this was definitely one of the most exciting,” said Chris.

“It was fantastic to have Deborah attending the show, which attracted huge interest from visitors.”

Deborah said: “I have solar installed on my home. It was enlightening to find out how solar PV is installed and these are exciting times for Ploughcroft as the company extends its services.”
