In 1994, the company unfortunately went into administration, and I had to look elsewhere for opportunities. From 1994 to 1996, I worked for two companies inspecting and testing electrical installations in council properties such as schools, offices, fire stations, and police stations. I continued this work until the contracts ended, and the latter company had no more projects in the local area.
In October 1996, I decided to make the jump and become a self-employed electrical contractor. I first became an NICEIC Domestic installer in 2005 and later moved to a fully approved status in 2012, which remains current to this day. I’ve always stayed up-to-date and embraced all the changes in legislation, retraining where necessary to further my knowledge.
Recently, I installed a solar PV system with battery storage on my own house. This experience made me realize that the future lies in renewable energy, primarily due to the rising costs, market volatility, and, of course, the environmental damage caused by fossil fuels.
So, I thought I’d do my part in spreading the word. Along with the expertise of my two colleagues, we aim to deliver a local, friendly, and reliable service for all your solar needs.
