No matter where in the world you’re from, a safe, comfortable living space is essential for you to feel happy and secure. Although it’s easy to take for granted, sometimes we are given vivid reminders of just how lucky we are to have a place to call home.

When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, the devastation caused by the storm was immense. Many people lost their homes and businesses, and over the last ten years there has been a concerted effort to rebuild the areas of the city that were the worst affected by the hurricane.

SolarOne man who has become a leading figure in the reconstruction effort is Hollywood actor and New Orleans resident Brad Pitt, who owns a US$6.5 million, five-bedroom house in the French Quarter with his wife, Angelina Jolie. Since visiting the areas that were the hardest hit by Katrina, two years after the hurricane struck, Pitt has dedicated himself to the cause, and has been helping to provide new housing for people left homeless by the storm.

He established the Make It Right foundation in 2007 to build environmentally-friendly, attractive homes for the people of the city’s Lower Ninth Ward. Since then, the foundation has successfully completed 109 properties: houses that not only provide much-needed security for their occupants, but that are designed to keep running costs to a bare minimum, with solar panels to save on fuel bills and other eco-friendly features.

  • When Matt came round to discuss solar panels, he really listened to what I was saying, as I wanted a system whereby I could store the solar energy gathered during the day, and then use it when I came home. Whereas other companies told me this was impossible and wanted to sell me geothermal or other technologies, Princes LHS Ltd suggested a battery system, such as those used off-grid. A novel solution.

    I totally recommend them for solar technology

  • We at Grove School had been looking at ways of reducing our energy bills and upon speaking to Simon Lewis at Princes LHS Ltd in Ellesmere, he suggested carrying out a specialised lighting survey to reduce the overall wattage of our existing lighting installation by installing a more efficient type of light fitting with a lower overall wattage.

  • I just wanted to say a very big thanks to the two lovely lads Ryan and Jack who came out yesterday to fit our new bolier. They were very courteous and worked nonstop to ensure that the boiler was up and running for us.

    We have used Princes LHS Ltd in the past for our alarm system and electrics and have always been satisfied. Ryan and Jack are a credit to your company. their professionalism and politeness was very refreshing.
