From our family, to yours

Whether it’s our industry firsts, our test-rigs, our office dogs or our community involvement, we firmly believe we are a little unique!

One thing is for sure though, we owe all of our success to our amazing team, from fitters to finance, from the marketing team to the customer service desk, from our energy advisers to our electricians – our business wouldn’t be where it is today without our committed and determined staff who live and breathe our family business ethics.

Solar Plants is a happy, warm and inclusive place to work. Our staff enthuse their love for renewables and their role, and this transcribes into first class customer service.  And with now with over 6000 customers, top business and industry awards, plus one of the highest independent review site ratings, we know we must be doing something right!

We hope you enjoy reading about Solar Plants and look forward to helping you realise your solar dream in the very near future.

And the award goes to…

We have been incredibly privileged to have won a number of industry and business awards against some of the best companies in the UK.  Even some of our individual team members have won awards for their own personal contribution to the industry.

However, in November 2016 we won the highest accolade, Best UK Business of the Year, at the UK Business Awards, beating blue chip brands including Virgin Money, Barclays, Aldi and O2!  Not bad for a business that started out just 5 years ago with 5 people in a small cold industrial unit.

Having a passion for what you are doing can take you a long way.

Trusted by thousands

Over the years our customers have been doing a lot of the hard work for us, talking to their friends and family about the benefits of solar.  Indeed over a 1/3 of our work comes from personal recommendation.

For those that don’t know of us, we decided to ‘bare all’ by registering on Trustpilot, the UK’s leading independent review website, encouraging our customers to leave a review for all to see.

More recently we were audited by Which?, and after stringent tests were accepted as a Which? Trusted Trader.

So don’t take our word for it, check out what our customers really think.

Industry accomplishments

We are proud to be industry leaders and have been at the forefront of industry firsts, including being the first to install a fully operational Tesla Powerwall in a customer’s house in Cardiff, to installing the solar to storage connectivity of the UK’s largest off-grid classrooms with Aquion (salt-water) battery technology at Swansea University.

As a result of being at the forefront of installing the latest technology, we are regularly asked to present at Government and council think tanks, including speaking about the effectiveness of battery storage to the Welsh Government’s Sustainability Energy Group and more recently at the Environment and Rural Affairs Committee.

And keep your eyes peeled for our latest collaboration…it’s very exciting!

Protecting your investment

In a global market, it is important that we recommend the right products for our customers climate.  What might be a great product in Dubai is not necessarily going to be the best option for a family in Dartford.  We know our customers put their faith in our ability to recommend the technology which is going to be the best for them.  This is a responsibility we take seriously.

Therefore in addition to detailed research, we installed our own panel test rig in Bristol where we continually test 20 of the UK’s most recommended modules to ensure that the technology we recommend match our stringent performance and warranty criteria.

In 2015 we also installed an inverter test rig on our offices in Baglan Energy Park, where we test the leading stringed inverter against micro-inverters and power optimised inverter technology.  The performance difference is substantial.

Over 6,000 installs and counting

Yes 6,000! All plotted on this map which shows all installations and all technologies including solar, storage, commercial and upgrades since we formed in 2011.

Headquartered in South Wales, we have national installation teams and energy advisers covering both England and Wales, with plans to install in Scotland in the very near future.

So take comfort from the fact that we are well and truly a safe pair of hands.

Our partners & certifications

From start to finish the service from Solar Plants was first class. The individuals with whom I had contact at head office and those who carried out the work were exceptional in the service they gave and in the work they carried out. Solar Plants kept me well informed throughout and delivered on time what they had promised. Better than many other companies with whom I have done business. Well done and keep it up.”
