AN EAST Devon based company has a sunny outlook - thanks to a boost of business for its solar power product.

Naturalwatt said its orders are up by 300 per cent - and it will be looking to recruit staff later this month.

Will Grafton, who set up the business five years ago, said: "The new feed-in-tariffs mean that home owners can be paid for every unit of energy they generate from their renewable systems.

"In addition, they can sell any excess energy back tot he National Grid - netting them a return on investment in the region of eight to nine per cent, saving an average of £1,000 each year on their energy bills."
