Glen Peters
Founder of Western Solar


Glen Peters has worked in engineering, pharmacy and investment banking but they never felt quite right. Glen has now turned his hand to solar energy, building the first solar farm in West Wales. Here’s what he learnt along the way.

Glen Peters was born in India and grew up in a railway colony near Calcutta. He emigrated with his parents to London and took a degree in Chemistry and later a PhD in information management.

In the 80’s he joined Price Waterhouse where he consulted with many of the world’s largest companies up until last year.

In 1995, he and his wife began an accidental journey which has resulted in a love affair with Wales the transformation of half derelict mansion in Pembrokeshire to a centre for the arts and the soon to be home of Pembrokeshire’s first solar farm.
