Who we are
In a world where fossil fuels are limited, nuclear is expensive, and neither are sustainable – the goal of SSW is to continue to contribute towards the development and deployment of clean, renewable solar generation and storage technology.
We commissioned the first 1MW+ roof-top solar installation in the UK at JB Wheaton and Sons. We later completed our second 1MWp+ ground-mounted solar farm in the UK (one of the first in the UK) at Coombe Farm
We completed the build-out of a 3.2MWp portfolio for AH Warren Trust and completed a 3.5MWp portfolio of roof-top and ground-mounted projects for KWTN Solar.
We completed hundreds of domestic solar installation projects for clients, as well as developing larger utility-scale projects, and building multi-megawatt roof and ground-mounted installations. We grew our specialist Operation & Maintenance capability and client base.
We merged with our electrical partners, TRN Electrical Ltd. We completed installs and remediation works for important clients such as Thatchers Cider and Innova Capital. We grew our Operation & Maintenance Responsibilities to 17MWp under management. Jonathan Bensted joined us Managing Director, as Nick Keeler sailed away around the world and to explore solar opportunities in New Zealand.
We saw an increase in demand for domestic solar projects and interest in larger schemes. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, we mastered remote team working and still managed to install 1.5MWp of new projects during the year, including a large roof-top project for Yeo Valley Production Centres, and electrical remediation works at three utility-scale projects. We obtained planning permission on a 12MWp site in North Devon on behalf of a client.
Who we are
Solar South West was established in 2009, by Nicholas Keeler, Mark Wheaton, Tim Noyes and Philip Cook. At this time the UK solar industry was very small, and an opportunity existed for a business to specialise in commercial scale systems benefiting forward thinking clients from increasing electricity costs and the early subsidies offered by the Renewables Obligation and Feed in Tariff schemes.
