Eco-Environments aims to dominate renewable energy market
Liverpool-based renewable energy start-up, Eco-Environments, said it plans to open offices in 'all corners of the UK' after claiming turnover of £1.8m in its third financial year.
The firm has its head office at Energy House, Rimrose Road, Liverpool, and recently opened offices in Darlington, Manchester, Penrith and Tamworth.
Eco-Environments, which employs 20 staff, designs, installs and commissions renewable energy and energy conservation solutions, specialising in solar photovoltaic, wind turbines and solar thermal water heating systems.
Eco-Environments is owned by three directors, Mike Clarke, David Hunt and Mark Buchanan. Clarke has 20 years' experience in the contracting industry, while Hunt brings more than 20 years' sales and marketing experience to the business. Hunt also sits on the board of the Low Carbon Economy Council for the Liverpool City Region and the Energy and Environment steering group for Liverpool Chamber of Commerce. Buchanan oversees the company's financial reporting, systems and processes.
As well as residential work other recent customers include Glan Aber School in Flintshire where a 3.87kW solar PV system was installed to reduce carbon footprint and annual energy costs.
Hunt said: "Renewable energy is one of the most exciting sectors in Britain today and during the past three years, Eco-Environments has established itself as one of the fastest growing and most respected businesses in that market.
"We have a very clear business plan which will see us establish ourselves as the leading business of its kind in the North of England and then across the whole of the UK. We believe having a local presence is critical and we will continue to open offices in the different regions.
"Whether you are interested in doing your bit against climate change, reducing energy costs or creating an additional income stream through Feed in Tariffs and by selling surplus energy back to the National Grid, we are able to provide domestic and commercial customers with the best solutions for them.
"There is a lot of buzz particularly around Feed in Tariffs in which customers are paid for every kilowatt hour of electricity their system produces irrespective of whether they use it or not as well as being paid for electricity sold back to the Grid."
In addition to its regional openings, Eco-Environments has also recruited former financial advisor Ian Wilkinson as business development manager in Merseyside.
