Who are we ?

Solar Matters was established in May 2008, with concerns about the environment and with passionate feelings about carbon reduction. We identified a real potential to make a significant difference, within the ever-growing and evolving UK Renewable market place.

As Operations Director of a specialist, green energy, electrical heating company, and being an busy Energy Performance of Buildings Surveyor, Rick Wilson has been involved first hand in the fledgling Carbon reduction marketplace, and attempts to be involved at the outset of all new technologies.

Recognising the huge potential to make a genuine difference to the environment and assist in lowering our carbon output, we concluded that a hands-on, customer-needs focussed, and collaborative approach was required, to guide clients through the process of identifying opportunities from initial survey and system design, through the installation and commissioning process, finalising with provision of a first class aftersales & service back up.

Rick teamed up with former work colleagues, who had extensive experience in the electrical and construction industry, lately within the renewable marketplace where they had been focussing primarily on Solar PhotoVoltaics.

This has brought about a fusion of our combined technical, operations, and customer focussing experience and expertise from across a variety of businesses and industries.

The Solar Matters team was born, with the business having a clear intention of taking the fear out of Renewables by offering a ‘hand-in-hand’ turnkey approach with all our clients, both commercial and domestic.

The increasing awareness of the huge benefits of fitting Renewables at a micro level along with the tightening legislation affecting the new build environment has fuelled a steady growth over the last few years and this looks likely to explode over the next eighteen to twentyfour months. As a result Solar Matters feel that they have positioned the team wisely with their approved manufacturers and accreditation bodies to offer the best possible service to our valued clients.
