With Climate Change upon us we are all looking for something we can do to reduce Carbon Emissions. The World has at last accepted Solar panels as the most simple, reliable, and cost-effective way to generate our own Green electricity especially when combined with onsite battery storage.

Whether it’s your home, office building, factory or farm we can help you find a solution that will fit your needs and budget. We have installed over 2000 Solar panel systems around the country and can show how successful our systems can be from actual live monitoring.

We can help you choose top quality equipment that will give you up to 40 years of energy generation. There is no other product in the World that comes with a 25 or even 30-year performance warrantee that has be proven in the most inhospitable locations from outer space, desserts and Artic sites.

Please look through our web site and learn more about solar battery storage, proportional power diverters, ground and air sourced heat pumps and whole house ventilation with heat recovery. But it doesn’t stop there. We can advise on Low carbon building specification for both new build and property refurbishment to minimise energy use, control costs and future proof your buildings.


We often get asked what Solar panels and inverters are the best and why do we recommend particular brands. There are many panel manufacturers with most being based in Asia and especially China.

The major European brands have all now disappeared having been forced out by the competition from China. After the demise of Solar World of Germany, we moved to Qcells who were originally German, but were bought by Hanwa of South Korea. After significant investment in new state of the art factories and R&D based in Germany, they continue to deliver some of the most advanced modules while still offering good value. Other brands we sometimes use are REC, LG and Sunpower.

Our confidence in our choices has been proven by never having to replace a faulty panel since we started in 2009. For up-to-date information please follow the links to the manufacturer’s web sites. Hanwa Qcells are updating their technology yearly and we are currently fitting ML G9 385w with Black frame and ML G9 380w all black panels.

Solar PV inverters convert the panel generated DC current into Grid acceptable AC power. The correct choice is important in maximising generation. We use the worlds most advanced inverters from SMA, Fronius, Solar Edge and Solis.

As with all complex electronic devices there are always a small number of failures, and every inverter will fail by the time it is around 12 years old.

You will find that we always buy our inverters with a 10 year extended warrantee so you have peace of mind for the first 10 years.

For roof mounting equipment we use Schletter of Germany for on-roof, GSE of France for in-roof and Wagner of Germany or Van der Valk for flat roof ballast mounted systems.
