Public sector solar panel installations
There are more and more reasons for public sector organisations to use solar power and we have helped many to do so over the last eight years. Schools, colleges, councils, and social housing providers have all come to us seeking simple solutions that will work well on their properties and projects. We have delivered a diverse range of solar energy systems for clients in this sector - from whole estate developments of fifty houses with a solar panel on each, to large school solar electric systems and centralised solar hot water systems for blocks of flats.
These clients have all had slightly different drivers for adopting this technology, but there are some common themes that run through all. The massive rise in fuel costs over the last few years is changing the way we think about energy, and the huge issue of climate change that has rightly become a focus of concern throughout our society. The other key thing that has united all of our clients is that they are keen to take action on these issues and are looking for the right partners to deliver it for them. This is where we come in.
We can help with the whole process: from initial site visits; explanatory presentations to key decision makers; quotations; accessing grant funding; installation; commissioning; handover; user training and maintenance. So if you are not sure where to start, whether solar will work for you or what grants you may be able to access - we can help.
If you are not sure what your next step is in your journey to getting solar into your organisation, be inspired by others who have managed it on our case studies page. Have a look at funding that may be able to help, or if you have some questions why not drop us a line.

Green Investment Bank
The UK is to set up the world’s first investment bank solely dedicated to greening the economy.
The initiative is part of the Government’s commitment to setting the UK firmly on course towards a green and growing economy, while also delivering long-term sustainable growth.
This transition to a green economy presents significant growth opportunities for UK-based businesses, both at home and abroad.
It will require unprecedented investment in key green sectors - an estimated £200 billion is needed for the energy system alone over the period to 2020.
The UK Green Investment Bank (GIB) will be a key component of the progression towards a green economy, complementing other green policies to help accelerate additional capital into green infrastructure.
Its mission will be to provide financial solutions to accelerate private sector investment in the green economy. Capitalised with £3 billion, the GIB will play a vital role in addressing market failures affecting green infrastructure projects in order to stimulate a step up in private investment.
It will build the necessary deep expertise in financial markets and green investments, working towards a ‘double bottom line’ of both achieving significant green impact and making financial returns.
Following best practice, it will be established under the Companies Act and operate at arm’s length from government.
The Government expects to obtain state aid approval for the GIB by autumn 2012. In advance of this, the Government will begin making investments in green projects from April 2012.
The GIB is one of a number of key policies designed help meet environmental objectives and promote economic growth. Other initiatives include the creation of a National Infrastructure Plan, reforms to the electricity market, changes to the climate change levy, the introduction of a renewable heat incentive, the review of waste policy and the reviews of Ofgem and Ofwat.
Several non-green specific policies also support our growth and environmental objectives, including banking reform, support for early stage innovation and skills provision.
