Founded in early 2016 but with a wealth of experience, Solar Energy Matters is a specialist solar PV installation company working predominantly in the South East of England.
We specialise in new solar installations for private domestic clients and architects, as well as with multiple installations for new-build developers.
We also undertake repairs and upgrades to existing solar PV installations, taking on anything from solar-related roof repairs, to inverter upgrades and high-tech energy storage add-ons.
Our founder, Gary Roberts, began working in the solar industry in the early 2000’s after researching, importing and installing his own solar panel system as part of his wish as a new father to somewhat reduce his own impact on the planet.
Subsequently, Gary was employed as the General Manager for a solar installation business, and as Government incentives were introduced and the market grew, so Gary’s company came to install several hundred kilowatts-worth of solar PV for their clients. As well as always striving to give the correct advice to their customers, the business became renowned for their bespoke one-off installations, where something unique was required. Additionally, the company won numerous contracts with new-build developers and was even employed as a roving trouble-shooter by one or two solar suppliers when other people’s installations had gone awry and needed expert rectification.
Immediately prior to founding Solar Energy Matters, Gary was employed as a independent auditor by Solarcentury, one of the UK’s pre-eminent solar pioneers, in which role he inspected and audited a number of commercial solar installations against current installation standards.
Now with Government solar incentives drastically reduced and many other solar companies forced out of the market, Solar Energy Matters is the ideal specialist company for you to speak to when you are considering your own new solar installation.
