Burnley-based Low Carbon Energy has entered 2022 with a 300% increase in turnover compared to the start of pandemic.
The smart energy solutions provider has recorded a four-million-pound turnover, from their UK base, whilst also performing from their base in the Republic of Ireland, where the company has reached one million pounds for the first time.
Gerard Ennis, managing director at Low Carbon Energy, explains:
“It is an incredible time for our business. Enquiries have doubled in number, with the value of the projects also on the rise over the last twelve months, demonstrating that an increasing number of businesses are interested in becoming sustainable and benefiting from creating their own renewable energy.
“Our growth is not set to slow down any time soon. We have ambitious goals for our next financial year, targeting to grow to over five million pounds in the UK and two million pounds in Ireland.”
The company has made some strong partnerships in 2021, including a deal with Drax Power as their solar panels’ provider throughout the UK. The team has also completed the UK’s largest SolarEdge project, a 2.7MW system for Boohoo in Burnley, Lancashire.
Other work completed included a 1.7MW solar energy project for the NHS, showcasing the variety of sectors Low Carbon Energy is now working within.
2021 saw the addition of a new Operations Manager and Solar PV Designer. The growing team achieved their ISO 9001 and 14001 accreditations, and over the last eleven years can proudly confirm that, through their installations, Low Carbon Energy has contributed to a 12,000 tonnes of carbon reduction, equal to 75,000 trees.
The company is actively looking for new talent to join their strong team. You can find out more on their website: Careers | Low Carbon Energy Company
