We obtain funding and design, construct and maintain domestic, commercial and utility scale energy projects for clients ranging from SMEs to blue chip corporate clients and global investors.
As well as supporting new-build housing and commercial developments we assist with retrofitting solar PV for social and public sector housing landlords. We also help owners or tenants of large commercial buildings by delivering roof top PV, biomass and other energy technologies.
In particular, we have a very strong track record in the development of large solar farms. We work with local communities and landowners to bring forward superior schemes with excellent prospects for obtain planning consent.
High quality engineering is at the heart of everything we do. All of our schemes – solar, other renewable and conventional – optimise performance using state-of-the art energy technology.
