SCAM PHONE CALL WARNING.. We are getting lots of calls recently from customers who have had phone calls from a call centre wanting to book in a 'Warranty Service' for free and can be with you in a day, or even the same day. Also looking to fit additional items for thousands of pounds.. All they seem to telling people is false information, and it seems they are trying to lure you into signing up to a very expensive service contract, possibly worse. A case has been opened with Trading Standards. If you do get a call, or they have been to your house, call 03454 040506 to report it. The company has so far been going by the names of Solar Advice Centre and Green Energy Advisory, other names will probably be used. DO NOT LET THEM INTO YOUR HOUSE. (27/4/17)
UPDATE!. Another company called Esave Heating is sending out letters to all Solar PV owners in the area telling them their original installer has ceased trading. This is another misleading sales gimmick. Throw the letter in the bin. If they are misleading you now, they are going to do it even more if you ask them to carry out work for you!

Energy Storage update
We install in the South West for a variety of Energy Storage systems. 2017 has sen some good breakthrough's in technology, not only with versatile smaller sizes but great pricing that makes the cumbersome Tesla look really out of date! Now that Li-Ion battery technology has come down in price as well as size, old lead acid technology is now been replaced with smaller, neater and long lasting Lithium technology.

Off Grid Power.
For so many situations where mains electricity is either not available or far too expensive to get installed, we can
offer a design and installation package. From running lights & TV in a caravan or a remote telecoms site, right through to containerised power systems for a remote house or business. See our specialist OFF GRID website.

Solar PV installations
The Feed in Tariff rate has been reduced at the start of this year, but we are seeing that for anyone who has uses power, especially during the day, installing a PV system will reduce the ongoing running cost
s considerably. With future huge price rises in energy already starting, coupled with far lower PV panels costs, getting solar PV installed is the most cost effective method of reducing your power bills. For more information see our SOLAR PV pages
Commercial Solar PV systems
Ideal to offset high power bills, something that is becoming really important for many businesses. See our Commercial PV page for more information.
As well as competetive installation costs on a wide variety of roof types, we offer upgrades to existing systems to provide better annual output and monitoring to reassure you your system is performing at it's best.
