A green energy company is targeting commercial customers after opening for business in Northern Ireland.

Renewable Solutions is looking to work with businesses and organisations keen to become more energy efficient and reduce their energy costs.

The company opened an office in Cromac Square, Belfast, last year and has since provided dozens of domestic customers with a range of renewable energy solutions including solar PV, heat pumps, solar thermal, heat pumps and biomass.

The success the company has enjoyed has led to Head of Commercial David Hunt targeting business owners.

David Hunt said: “During the past year, Renewable Solutions has undertaken more than 600 installations as a business across both domestic and commercial customers and the Northern Ireland operation has provided a number of these projects.

“Our customers have seen dramatic reductions in their carbon emissions along with significant cuts to their energy bills.

“Our commercial team is active in a number of sectors including healthcare, education, farming, hospitality and food manufacturing and we have already begun a number of discussions with businesses in these areas in Northern Ireland.”

There are a number of funding opportunities available to businesses to help them put in place their own green energy strategy. These include the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme and commercial grants of up to £3,000 available through Action Renewables’ partnership with Electric Ireland. The grants are being issued on a first come, first served basis. Solar PV is also an attractive proposition for most commercial customers with payments made of 17.6p per kWh for installations up to 50kwp.

David Hunt added: “Our company is able to act as both adviser and installer and our experienced 40-strong team can deliver all aspects of a project.”

Renewable Solutions was founded in 2008 and has its head office in Wirral, Merseyside. In addition, it has further offices in Edinburgh, Swindon and Sunderland. Last year, the company achieved a turnover of £4.5million. It is one of the longest established installers in the UK.

The company has a full set of Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accreditations as well as the Quality Management and Environmental standards ISO9001 and ISO14001.
