Meet The Team
Our reputation is based on our expertise and experience. Our directors are all qualified to at least MSc level and hold professional membership of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA), as well as other specialist institutions relevant to their particular area of expertise. As a business, everything we do is controlled through our integrated management system, which is certified to the international standards ISO9001, for quality and ISO14001 for environmental management. We are also certified installers for wind turbines through the Microgeneration Certfication Scheme and licensed EcoHomes assessors.
We don't employ salespeople. The same people answer the phone, carry out site visits, complete planning applications, lay foundations, install and maintain turbines. These same people also manage legal compliance for multi-national corporations, design greener products, manage carbon emissions and all the rest. This means that from the moment you contact us, you will only ever be dealing with people who really know what they are talking about; people who know what to look for and tell you about it before it becomes a problem. Not people who must make a sale, whatever the cost.
