PV Solar UK’s main focus is the design supply and installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems for domestic properties; however it also undertakes occasional commercial installations and also has a trade sales department.
The company was established in 2009 and is fully accredited by both MCS and RECC. With the governments introduction of the feed-in-tariff scheme the popularity of solar PV quickly grew as it was a great investment financially and it also was playing a part in reducing carbon emissions. The scheme rewarded consumers financially by paying them to generate their own electricity and also any surplus energy created can be sold back to the national grid.
As a result of the increasing popularity of the feed-in-tariff the company grew very quickly and at its peak in 2011 was installing approx. 150-200 PV systems per week UK wide. Since then the government have reduced the tariff rate as it was unsustainable in the long run. The reduction in the tariff has had a big impact on the industry but PV Solar UK continues to be successful.
We currently have our Head Office in Cambuslang and further offices in Swindon, Exeter and Colchester. Currently the company employs around 70-80 staff and we continue to install around 40-50 new installations per week, making it one of the largest installers in the UK.
The company is looking to grow further and is in the process of being accredited for the Green Deal. In addition to the installation of Solar PV it is looking to undertake installations of new boilers, advanced heating controls and external wall insulation.
