European Designed and Sourced Materials

We prefer to use European suppliers for solar panels and components due to the proven high quality and robustness of their products. 

There is also the advantage of lower transport emissions than importing from the Far East.

Carport example

Customised To Your Needs

Choose a carport entirely customised to your needs – your roof type, incorporate lighting, EV charge points, or company colours as desired.

The solar panels work in the same way as a traditional rooftop solar installation, with a connection to your existing electricity supply, backup battery storage, or connection to the grid (dependent on DNO approval).
